I loooove Halloween, it’s such a fun time of the year!  A time to use our imaginations and creativity.  A time to decorate and dress up, whether you are 1 or 101. Part of the enjoyment for me in this season of my life is making Halloween crafts with my kiddo. It’s so awesome to see his excitement and watch his imagination grow.  BUT, let’s face it, some days it’s tough to find the time to set aside and focus on crafts with him.  And I’m sure there are other mommas out there (and dads, too) who feel that way. That’s why I’m sharing 13 easy and super fun Halloween crafts I’ve collected. A whopping 11 of the 13 have free printables to make it easy, peasy, pumpkin squeezy. So you can do very little prep and still have creative, fun crafts to share with your kids!

First up is a friendly bow-tie wearing skeleton, made from q-tips!  The bow-tie can also be used as a “hair” bow.  A free writing activity is available with this…just think what fun stories your kiddos might come up with for this fellow.
