Halloween crafts can range from really cute to down right scary. There is definitely plenty of room to play when crafting for Halloween.
Some kits and crafts featured here today are easy enough for children to make. Some were created with the elderly in mind, but all of these Halloween crafts are designed to be a lot of fun to make and display for Halloween.
I feel certain there is a Halloween craft here for a crafter of any age.

With several years of volunteer experience to rely on, she offers her favorite suggestions for crafts that are easy for the elderly to make.
Intricate patterns or small piece projects are often too tedious for an elderly patient, but they still love to create and craft. It really is imperative to select craft projects and kits that are appropriate for their limitations. You will want these projects to be fun for them, not taxing or upsetting because the selected craft emphasizes their reduced skills.
Many of Mary Beth's (mbgphoto) Halloween crafts would also be fun for children.
