14 Spooky Monster Crafts for Kids to Make for Halloween

Halloween monster crafts for kids to make can be spooky, but not too spooky to scare them!

They’re perfect for kids to make because monsters can look like anything, made from anything, and do anything…

Monsters come in so many shapes and forms. Especially around Halloween. Ghosts, goblins, spiders…. they’re all monsters, aren’t they?

We’ve made quite a few monsters here, but I’ve also found some fun ones to try too! Here some fun monster crafts that kids will love to make including some ghosts, spiders, a monster snack and even some sensory monster slime to play in!
