Halloween is easily one of the best holidays ever — I mean, costumes and candy? It's a match made in heaven. But you know what makes Halloween even better? Getting to enjoy it through the eyes of all the kids in your life.

Seeing a child get excited about the magic of the holiday is sometimes even better than eating 20 fun size Snickers bars in one sitting (although, don't get me wrong — that is also very, very good).

If you're looking for a way to make the most out of this Halloween, I recommend choosing one or two (or more!) of these craft projects and doing them together as a family. Not only will you have a great bonding experience; you'll also be able to decorate your home for Halloween!

I've selected a bunch of crafts for kids of all ages — just click on the pictures to be taken to more detailed instructions for each one.

Are you ready to get spooky and crafty?

Well then, grab your gluesticks, turn on "Monster Mash!" Let's get to it!

Popsicle Stick Spiderwebs

All you need for this craft is popsicle sticks, yarn, and a little bit of glue. Wind the yarn around the glued-together popsicle sticks and voila! Instant spiderwebs.

Melted Crayon Pumpkin

This is another fun way to decorate pumpkins that won't involve knives or scooping out the slimy guts! Grab some crayons and a heat gun or hair dryer!

Pumpkin Slime

I mean, who doesn't love a good slime recipe, right? This slime is the perfect mix of gloppy and puffy. Decorate the container to look like a Jack-O-Lantern for an added fun project!

Halloween Piñata

Don't throw out those toilet paper tubes! Fill them with candy, wrap them with crepe paper, and add some googly eyes to create a Halloween-themed mini piñata!

Yarn-Wrapped Mummy

Speaking of mummies, you can also create one by wrapping white yarn around a human-shaped cardstock cutout. Add some eyes for extra spooky results.

Drinking Straw Skeleton

Cut a plastic drinking straw into pieces and arrange them on a piece of black construction paper to make your very own skeleton decoration.

Apple Pumpkin Stamping

As it turns out, an apple that's been cut in half makes the perfect pumpkin shape. After you stamp the pumpkin, go back in with some paint to fill in the other details.

Q-Tip Skeleton Arm

Handprint art is always fun! You can also keep this craft until next year to compare your child's hand size!

Paper Plate Spiders

You probably still have a stack of paper plates leftover from a summer barbecue. Now, you can use them to make this spider craft.

Monster Rocks

Honestly, adding googly eyes to random stuff — even rocks — is a great way to spend some time with the kiddos. Assuming you can find a few rocks outside, this craft is super cheap.

Toilet paper ghost.

Take another paper plate from your stash and attach toilet paper streamers to one side. Draw a spooky face on the plate (or assemble one with construction paper) and hang your new ghost friend somewhere inside.

Googly Eye Bookmarks

These bookmarks only take a couple minutes to make, but they look so cute! You could even make a bunch of these to hand out to trick-or-treaters!

Bowling Game

This craft can also double as a game! All you need is some construction paper and a few plastic cups. (You could also just draw the faces on with a Sharpie in a pinch.)

Flying Witch Puppet

This craft project moves! You don't have to limit yourself to a flying witch. You could also create a dangling spider, drifting ghost, or a flying bat!

Toilet Paper Tube Bat

Here's another use for those toilet paper tubes! You can turn them into bats. Use pipe cleaners for the legs, and you can hang them pretty much anywhere.

Popsicle Stick Scarecrow

If you're looking for something a little less scary, this scarecrow craft is perfect. I love the idea of attaching a magnet on the back so you can hang him up on your fridge.

Cotton Ball Ghosts

Here's a great craft for little hands! Cut a ghost shape out of a piece of cardstock, then let your kids stick cotton balls to it using school glue. Add some construction paper eyes and a mouth, and you've got yourself a cuddly ghost.

Bat Bookmarks

Here's another clever bookmark idea. These bookmarkers stick onto the corners of the page, so the bats appear to be eating your book. Eek!

Clay Tealight Ghosts

OK, this one is super clever. Use air-drying clay to create a ghostly sculpture, then place it over a battery-powered tealight candle to light it up. How great would these look on your dining table?

Spider Web Painting

First, draw a spider web (or any other design) onto a piece of paper. Then, paint with watercolors. You can also sprinkle regular table salt on the paint to create a really cool mottled effect.

Pumpkin Salt Painting

While you've got the salt out, here's another cool painting activity! Draw your design using school glue, then sprinkle salt onto the glue, tapping off the excess. Load up your paintbrush and touch it to the salt, then marvel as the salt magically soaks up the paint!

Paper Bag Monsters

You can make various monsters parts out of construction paper, felt, craft foam, fabric, or whatever else you've got lying around.

Vanishing Ghosts

All you need for this project is biodegradable packing peanuts. Draw a little face on them, then put them in water. In a few moments, they'll disappear! Spooky.

Cookie Cutter Ghosts

I love this idea of using cookie cutters as paint stamps! You could use a whole set of Halloween-themed cookie cutters to create different patterns. (And don't forget about this technique for other holidays, too!)

Monster Wreath

Let the neighborhood know just how seriously your family takes Halloween by creating an adorable monster wreath like this one using pompoms and googly eyes.

Glitter Glue Spider Web

Draw a spider web on a piece of wax paper, then trace your drawing with school glue. Add glitter, tap off the excess, then let it dry. Once it's dry, carefully peel off your spider web and hang it wherever you see fit.

Egg Carton Spiders

With a little black paint (or a marker), some googly eyes, and a few pipe cleaners, you can easily transform egg cartons into tiny spiders.

Egg Carton Pumpkins

You could also transform egg cartons into tiny pumpkins like these ones! Maybe you and your kids could come up with even more egg-carton-based designs!

Candy Corn Paper Plate

Use crayons, markers, or paint to decorate paper plate wedges to look like candy corn. These would make an awesome bit of Halloween garland for your mantel! Share this with the craftiest person you know!
