Using the Halloween Templates


To use the templates. First download the pdf file by clicking on the click here button above each picture for the template you want to use.

Then print it out at home or at a print shop. I like to print on card stock if I am using that paper for crafting or decorations. If you are using it to trace white printer paper is fine.

For the paper if I’m tracing I trace on construction paper. It is great for kids crafts and card stock is a very sturdy paper for using paint or glue. Any colorful paper works for some of the crafts. If you are doing the build a crafts you can glue it on colorful paper.

Then get to coloring and crafting. Craft with tissue paper, paint, crayons, stickers, and pom poms. Those are just a few ideas. Get creative with ways to use the templates. Once again feel free to use all of the templates if you want or just one.

You can use these free printable Halloween templates for making crafts, decorations, and for Halloween parties. I hope you now have a ton of Halloween ideas for kids and are as excited about Halloween as I am!
