Halloween is near, and you know what that means… time for some spooky crafts with the kids. Or, in this case, some not-so-spooky crafts. Some kids aren’t big on the spook factor (like mine). But these bat crafts are adorable, and they’re the perfect Halloween crafts for kids of all ages. Whether you need a simple craft for a toddler or preschooler or a cool idea for the older kids, you’ll find some scary good ideas here.
