It’s the creepiest, cookiest time of the year. We love making and sharing creative crafts for tweens and teens – so it only makes sense that we would pull together this collection of super cool Halloween crafts for tweens and teens to make.

What do we look for in a tween or teen craft? We search around for fun crafts that require a little more skill than the usual crafts for younger kids. Tweens and teens are looking for more challenging crafts, right? Older kids are also able to work without a lot of guidance, which makes these projects perfect for after school and weekend crafting.
