Maybe (like me) you’ve been trying to conjure a little extra magic for Halloween from what’s on hand. For this, there’s nothing like some paper (any paper you’ve got, though you may need to turn it into squares) and the universe of easy origami and kirigami on YouTube.

Below is a little of the fun we’ve found for Halloween this year. (These videos might yield a few spooky decorations to surprise your kids with. The bat and cat may be easy enough for kids 5+ to try folding with help.) Thank you, paper loving YouTubers, for sharing these designs.

Happy Halloween! 🎃

(This is one of mine from PLAY @ Home. If you have several paper grocery bags, you could use it to make a giant, no cost paper spider : ).
