Family Fun: Six Easy Halloween Crafts to Share with the Kids

A time for creativity to pour, the weeks preciding Halloween can also get a little stressful. I always end up with a long list of ideas and pinned projects to decorate the house, make costumes for the girls, bake special treats for school parties... At the end, a few days before Halloween, my good intentions are defeated by reality- time is never enough to do all that, and so I  choose a faster option... shopping!! 

However, I always try to put some time aside to work on a simple craft with my girls, something not complicated that gives us the opportunity to be together, talking, laughing, while our hands do all the work.

Do you feel like you belong in this story? Well, if that is the case, here you have a list of six beautiful projects that don't require an excessive amount of time or detailed craftmanship to get it done. They are cute and fun to work on. Now that days are getting cold and everyone feels like being indoors, grab a cup of your favorite coffee, serve something yummy for a snack, gather your supplies, and make any of these:
