Halloween DIY Crafts For Kids + Best Non Candy Treats

I can't believe it is already October ya'll! πŸ‘» I don't know about you but my children's school doesn't allow candy treats to be brought in for any occasion, including Halloween! So I have been brainstorming some kid friendly festive treats that are not candy/food. I'm going to share some fun idea's with you in case you are in the same boat as I am. I'm also going to share some super cute and easy Halloween DIY crafts for kids.

If you're not already following me on Pinterest you should be! I have a whole HALLOWEEN board with a ton of fun idea's from recipes to Disney pumpkins.

Here is a fun craft that just about anyone can do! All you need is paper, glue and pumpkin seeds.
Pumpkin Seed Fall Craft; could even do a brown construction paper stem with toddlers.
Simply draw a pumpkin on a piece of white paper and let your kids have fun painting the seeds orange. Then once the paint has dried let your kids glue the seeds to the pumpkin! If you want to avoid painting you could always just spray the seeds orange.

The paper plate pumpkin is always fun, but it can get a bit messy with the painting!

My kids really enjoy this fun craft

Simply glue q tips to your paper and you have an instant skeleton!!
