In this post, you’ll discover 40 fun Halloween crafts for toddlers that are simple, easy and festive! Use these crafts as the cutest Halloween decorations around the house!
Okay, Mamas, we’re are quickly heading into the busy holiday season and it’s time for us to get festive with our kids. First up, Halloween!
Because my daughter is almost 2-years-old, I decided to make a list of Halloween craft ideas for toddlers that are fun but still easy enough for a toddler to do the bulk of the work. Of course, parental supervision and assistance will still be required for all these crafts.
I divided the crafts into sections in case you are looking for a specific kind of Halloween craft. That way it’s easier for you to scroll down and find what you’re looking for. The crafts are divided as follows: pumpkin crafts, candy corn crafts, monster crafts, ghost crafts, spider crafts, mummy crafts, and creepy (but silly!) crafts for toddlers.
40 Fun Halloween Crafts for Toddlers
Pumpkin Crafts for Toddlers
1. Transparent Pumpkins
These transparent pumpkins are absolutely adorable and don’t require any paint which is always a bonus. Hang these pumpkins on any window in your house and watch as the sun shines through the tissue paper creating a stained glass effect.
2. Paper Plate Pumpkin
This paper plate pumpkin is a quick Halloween craft that uses materials you probably already have lying around the house. It does require lots of orange paint, so be prepared for a mess!

This easy fist bump-kins pumpkin craft is a keepsake craft you’ll want to save forever. I love this Halloween project because it can include the whole family!
4. Pumpkin Handprint and Photo Keepsake
Try this pumpkin handprint and photo keepsake if you’re looking for another Halloween craft that you’ll want to save and use as decor year after year!

These spatula pumpkins are not only adorable but such an easy Halloween craft to do if you have a younger toddler. I know my nearly 2-year-old would get a kick out of slapping the spatula onto the paper.

10. Pumpkin Play Dough
Try making this pumpkin play dough to give your toddler a sensory experience. This is more of a Halloween activity for toddlers because you can save the play dough and use it multiple times and it’s not something you can hang on your fridge.
11. Egg Carton Jack-O-Lanterns
Next time you run out of eggs, don’t throw away the carton. Instead, make these egg carton jack-o-lanterns. These adorable tiny jack-o-lanterns would be so cute on top of a fireplace mantle.

Carving pumpkins with toddlers is just not an option for obvious reasons, but they don’t have to be left out of the pumpkin fun. These toddler-friendly jack-o-lanterns are a pumpkin craft for toddlers that is completely safe!

My favorite thing about these candy corn flowers is that they are really just a fall craft for toddlers, so they can be used at fall decorations from September through November. Actually, all these candy corn crafts can be displayed throughout the fall season.

These construction paper monster puppets are not only adorable but also so easy to make using things you already have at home. If you don’t have any googly eyes lying around you can always make your own eyes out of construction paper.
