Halloween Kids Craft
craft. My kids love decorating our home with their own crafts. I try to always include some of their crafts and artwork in my home decor. I save some of their crafts year after year and I know they enjoy when I pull out some of their previous year’s artwork. Seeing their old work brings back memories and allows them to see their creative growth from the previous year.

Materials Needed for this Craft:

  • Black Sparkle Foam
  • Buttons
  • Adhesive
  • Darice Large Pipe Cleaners
  • White Pom Pom
  • Hole Punch
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon-to-Bead, yarn, or string


1. Begin by cutting out a foam circle. Use the rim of a cup or a juice lid to create your circle. Hole punch along the sides for the legs and one for threading the ribbon through.
