This Printable Halloween craft for kids is so simple to set up, and allows your child to put together a super cute Halloween picture with pretty much no mess. All treat – no trick.
We have put together four options with super cute Halloween pictures for kids to create this puzzle craft. And the best part is that you can use to make adorable Halloween cards for friends and family, or display them to decorate the house for Halloween.
Our free printable Halloween puzzle pack includes Pumpkin, Bats, Ghosts and a mixed Halloween design.

To make this easy Halloween paper craft you will need the following
- A Printer. If you don’t have a printer at home, you can access this at your local library
- Our free downloadable PDF files
- Paper for the background. We chose black
You probably have most of these basic supplies already to hand in your home.
After printing out your chosen puzzle (or go ahead and print out all four!) cut along the lines to create puzzle pieces.
Older kids can do this step independently, but for younger kids or to save time it will go more smoothly if you pre-cut the puzzle pieces for them.
For very young kids, you can keep some of the pieces together to create larger chunks and make the puzzle construction more age appropriate. Like this
Each of the puzzles in this pack has 16 pieces. N is age 4 so I cut all of the pieces ready for her to put the puzzle picture together.
Cutting and arranging the pieces are both great ways to develop fine motor skills, developing little hand muscles and working on hand eye coordination.
Next, your child can start finding matches to put the pieces together and glue them down piece by piece once they find the puzzle pieces that go next to each other.
This gives a little bit of a brain work out, focusing on logic, visual and spacial awareness skills.
Starting at the bottom was easiest for N, but if your child wants to start somewhere in the middle just make sure that they leave enough space all around to complete the picture.
This is a fun mess free craft for kids who enjoy jigsaw puzzles or logic challenges, and there is so much sense of pride and accomplishment for little children when completing tasks like these. N was so happy with her work!
As you can see above, we kept all of the pieces and supplies on a tray – this comes in really handy to prevent puzzle pieces being lost on the floor or scattered around during the craft.
This was a perfect activity for her to complete while I was making lunch nearby, independently but with some help when needed.

If you have a few children, have everyone choose a different puzzle according to their favorite Halloween characters.
This activity is also great for Halloween parties, you can put this out on the Halloween party craft table knowing that kids can complete this activity independently and with very little mess. Each child can take their finished Halloween craft picture home with them.
