15 Fun Halloween Crafts and Activities To Do With Kids

I’m not usually much of a Halloween person outside of the usual costume-wearing and trick-or-treating, but like all things 2020, I’m doing it a little differently this year. I’m leaning into finding joy in the little things, so for this spooky season, I’m doing that with touches of whimsical Halloween decor and matching Halloween pajamas for my kiddos.

Though I’m certainly no Martha Stewart, I’m confident even I can tackle some of these fun and easy Halloween crafts and activities with my kids this year too.
