This craft doesn't require a lot of materials and is flexible enough to use those you probably already have in the house. In order to make a trick or treat bag you'll need the following materials.

Halloween crafts for kids can be simple or elaborate according to the child's skill level. In this case, the amount of preparation depends on the age of your child. For young children, You'll need to cut out the shape of a ghost from the flat piece of foam and punch a hole in the top and bottom of the ghostly figure. Older children can do this step themselves.

Have the child use the marker to create the face of the ghost. Cut two lengths of yarn. One will be for the top of the ghost as a hook and the other for the bottom to hold the bell. Have your child string the bell, put the yarn through the bottom hole and tie it so the bell dangles. Then simply add the ribbon to the top and loop it to make a handle to hang up the ghost.

Cut two shapes for the pumpkin out of felt making it a U shape approximately 3 inches wide and 4 inches tall with the top straight. Stitch the two pieces together along the sides and the bottom with a running stitch. You can also glue them if your child is younger.

Decorate the face of the pumpkin and fill it with candy corn. Use the ribbon to gather up the top and tie it securely closed. Use other Halloween symbols like ghosts and bats for more Halloween crafts for kids.
