Halloween season is a great time for kids' crafts!

With Halloween always right around the corner, it's an ideal time to start making spooky themed crafts with the kids. From popsicle spiders to painted rocks, these crafts don't require any specialist equipment.

In fact, you can teach kids how to transform items such as shells into ornaments by painting them and letting their imagination run wild. You can decorate your home with the items too, especially if you have a Halloween tree.
