Something you can do this weekend without making a huge mess (save that for the pumpkin carving), but it will still be fun for everyone. A Halloween craft that might even leave you with an adorable Halloween decoration. Am I right?

Lucky you! I have just the thing. These 9 Halloween craft ideas are perfect for last-minute crafting. This year, Halloween falls on a Friday. YAY! That, of course, means no school the next day. 

We will still go trick-or-treating and have fun sorting candy, but that won’t be all this year. We are having some family over after trick or treating. Any of these crafts would make a perfect addition to our night of Halloween fun.

For even more Halloween fun, make these Zombie Halloween Treats to enjoy while you craft. These pumpkin fine motor mats are great to leave out all fall. And, of course, spider web slime to keep in reach all month!
