Believe it or not, some kids simply don't enjoy dressing up and being frightened after dark for Halloween. But that doesn't mean you can't celebrate -- decorating your home for the ghoulish day is a great way to spend time with your kids.
Don't worry, you don't even have to go out of your way to buy expensive supplies from party and craft stores -- just take a peek around your house to see what you have on-hand, then make a quick trip to your local dollar store to supplement your craft supply.
Here are three simple crafts you and your kids can make for $10 or less:
Creepy Crawly Spiders
Suitable for ages three to five.
- Little hands (free)
- Black paint ($1)
- Construction paper ($1 for a package)
- White glue ($1)
- Googly eyes ($3 for a combination package of googly eyes, pom poms and pipe cleaners)
- String ($1)
This craft will have your little ones giggling the whole afternoon because they finally have your permission to get their hands messy!
