Irrespective of whether you are buying our children’s Halloween craft kits or designing your own crafts, you are likely to need additional Halloween craft supplies, maybe even just glue or scissors. We have included below some ideas and links to our shop to guide you on the things you may need.
Most children’s Halloween craft sessions are run for groups, such as brownies, guides, cubs, preschools, after school clubs etc.

As a business we are sensitive to the fact that Halloween is met with mixed views by schools, churches, other groups and parents.
We are often asked for a suggestion for children’s craft sessions that can be completed in the build up to Halloween. They would feel "Halloweenish" for the children who chose to look at them this way but would also appear non-Halloween where this is more appropriate.
We always recommend pirate themed crafts for this. Why?
1. The skull and crossbones within pirate crafts are also used within Halloween crafts, so it can give the Halloween feel to crafts, without being overtly so.
2. Pirate themed crafts are probably the most popular in the world of kids crafts, so carries through to Halloween time craft sessions easily.
3. There is an extensive range available of children’s pirate craft kits and craft supplies, suitable for all ages, abilities and for both home and group craft sessions.
4. They are great for both boys and girls. Have you seen our pink pirate range? These have been designed for girls to make either at all-girl craft sessions (such as brownies and guides) or during pirate themed craft sessions and parties where there will be a mix of boys and girls.
Halloween falls within the autumn season, which offers some great alternatives to the standard children’s Halloween craft themes. You may like the alternative children’s Halloween craft suggested above but if you are looking for something that is not Halloween based but is still seasonal, then autumn themed crafts will probably fit the bill.
Our autumn themed crafts are mostly based around bonfires and autumn leaves. However, you could add some pumpkin based crafts to these to extend the craft experience.
Halloween, as a season, probably lends itself to mask making crafts for kids more than any other opportunity throughout the year.
At littlecraftybugs, we appreciate that some customers will want to design their own Halloween mask making craft and others will want to buy pre-designed mask making kits. Both of these options are catered for in our Halloween craft shop.
We have included some suggestions below to help you browse our kids craft shop and find the craft supplies and kits you will need.
Craft parties are continuing to grow in popularity, and the Halloween season and early dark nights make this season a perfect time of year for a Halloween themed craft party.
In addition to the massive range of children’s Halloween craft kits and Halloween craft supplies that we sell, we also stock a great range of Halloween party goods. This will enable you to buy both the Halloween themed crafts and party supplies in one place.
