Halloween Ghost Jugs. Everyone has milk cartons, right? This has to be one of the easiest and effective crafts I have seen. All you need to do is cut the bottom out of the jug, use a sharpie to draw a face and stick them on top of a strand of lights for an eerie ghost-like effect.
Halloween Family Foot-Ghost Portrait. Another easy craft and family bonding time! (Thanks, kidsactivitiesblog.com)
Q-Tip Skeleton. This one is pretty straightforward. Q-Tips, black construction paper and glue! Best of all, your kids can use their imaginations and get creative with designing the skeletons’ faces!
Egg Carton Bat. Simply cut portions of an egg carton in threes. Cut the end pieces to resemble wings. Paint it black. Stick on some of those small eyes you have leftover from your spiders! Add a string or ribbon to the top for hanging.
