Part of the fun in having the children in your life grow older is their increased abilities. This is never truer than when it comes to crafts. While very small children are limited in their ability and their patience in making crafts older kids all the way up to teens often love crafting and have the skills and patience to complete more complicated projects.
It is important though to keep in mind that all crafting projects should have adult supervision in order to help prevent injury and frustration. If you are looking for some fun projects to do here are some Halloween crafts for older kids-
