Haunted Halloween Popsicle Mansion!

Let’s start off our Halloween popsicle stick crafts for kids with one of the most iconic sights of spooky season: the haunted house

Now don’t get too scared! This DIY craft can be made as fun or as haunting as you and your kids want to make it. This is one of the most impressive Halloween popsicle stick crafts on this list. It does take a little more skill and patients than some other crafts on this list, but it’s worth it. 

This guide includes a recipe for sugar paste glue, but you can swap that out with any old kid-friendly craft glue, and you’ll be just fine.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Popsicles
  • Craft paint
  • Glue

Simply paint the sticks with stripes of spooky colors and have your kids match the colors with the corresponding clothespins. You can even find Halloween clothespins that have bats, pumpkins, and ghosts on them for some extra Halloween value. Kids will love these so much you can expect them to transform this simple craft into a full-blown fantasy world. 

Here’s what you’ll need to try your hand at this fun Halloween game.

3D Popsicle Stick Pumpkins

Yes, we just said 3D popsicle stick pumpkins

This craft is definitely the most involved on this list. Just like our haunted house, this one might be best either prepared ahead of time by the adults or put together by more experienced junior craft champions. 

Soak the popsicle sticks overnight, gently bend them into curves, and use the glass jars to help them hold their curves while they dry. Glue a few curves together, and you’ll have a basic pumpkin. Also like our spider web craft from earlier, these go great in little groups! 

Here’s what you’ll need to escape the 2D craft world:

  • Orange popsicle sticks
  • Bowl of water
  • Cups for shaping the soaked popsicle sticks
  • Hot glue or craft glue
  • Green buttons
  • Various ribbons and twine that match your Halloween theme

Once you’ve made the basic head shape, you can go wild crafting up the most frightening, or cutest, Halloween monster you can come up with! 

Here’s what you’ll need to help your little monsters create some monsters of their own:
