Tricks or treats can be created right at home with these delightful DIY projects for you and your little ghosts and goblins. There’s nothing better than homemade holiday decor to get into the holiday “spirits.”
And note that all these crafts are made “Frankenstein Green” with environmentally friendly, recycled products found on the home improvement website DiggersList.com. Check out their enormous assortment of items that crafty moms and kids can give a second life.
Kids 0-7 Years
Here is one fun project with three versions to accommodate children ages 0-2, 3-4, and 5-7. They’ll find their “green thumbs” in more ways than one with these silly and multi- purposeful pots.
Kids 3-4 Years
Your little one(s) can easily transform these bird houses (or bat houses) into haunted houses! With a little paint and fun foam holiday stickers, (or glitter, ribbon, buttons, etc.), you’ll be hosting a howling house warming party of your own.
Kids 5-7 Years
Your school-aged kids will love to get messy with this splendid paper mache pumpkin jack-o-lantern. With a little help from mom or dad, their artistic talents will shine.
