Here are a selection of five frighteningly fun Halloween themed crafts that are suitable for seniors and those with arthritis or other hand dexterity & strength issues. Some of the cuter crafts are also suitable for child crafters or for a whole family crafting event with none of the tutorials indulging in any of the more gruesome aspects of the holiday.
Besides the ample use of seasonal pumpkins, most of the tutorials use normal household supplies (such as jars, socks, paper, flowers) or basic crafting materials (such as felt, yarn, paint, various varieties of glue) as their bases. Special arthritis friendly crafting tools can be used for those senior loved ones who may have more trouble using normal scissors, brushes, and pens due to more extreme hand issues.
