If your kids are as excited about Halloween (already!) as mine, check out the fun and not-too-scary DIY Halloween craft kit from CMP favorite Kiwi Crate that will keep little hands busy and out of the Halloween candy stash. Even if you’re not quite ready to drag up the Halloween decor from the basement just yet.
Kiwi Crate’s Glowing Halloween crate includes a couple of easy Halloween crafts for kids ages 3-7. In other words, no bloody eyeballs or severed hands to worry about in this box.
Watch them turn little votives into Frankenstein’s head or a crawly spider that can then be lit up and put on the windowsill. And while real candles could be scary with kids, these votives use battery-operated tea lights instead.
I also really like the color-changing glowing ghost craft that doubles as a wearable light for safer trick-or-treating. Smart! Plus everything you need is supplied in the box so you won’t be running out of Mod Podge 2 minutes into a project.
Packaged in one of their sturdy, reusable boxes that let kids get crafty too, this kit would also make a great gift for an October birthday, or a sweet delivery for that special niece or nephew who lives too far away for you to see in person on Halloween.
Whether you dig into the candy yourself while the kids are distracted is totally up to you. -Christina
