Last Friday Chris took the day off and we both got to spend the morning at Phoenyx’s school, enjoying all the projects he has done in class, trunk or treating and class parties. I will tell you that the one thing that is so inspiring is to be in a preschool class. Sure, I do a lot of crafts here, but walking through and checking out all the projects that kids have done is so fun! I wanted to come back and share some of the ideas in hopes to inspire you as I was to keep doing more crafts at home with your kids.
Trust me- if a teacher can handle it with 10 3-year-old boys, anyone can in their house, right?
These are HALLOWEEN ideas, so you can tuck these away for next year, but since it’s just a few short days after Halloween, I am hoping you will forgive showcasing a few of these kid activities.
Lets get started!
Frankenstein Paper Craft Lab
- green, black and white cardstock paper
- glue stick
- black sharpie
Note: You can put together a Dr Frankenstein Crafting Lab by pre-prepping the shapes and letting your children glue together after you are done!
First, cut out a Frankie head shape. You can make this a square or a rectangle, but traditionally most people view Frankenstein as a rectangle. I found that turning a regular size sheet of paper sideways and cutting gave me 2 head shapes.
Cut out a black square and then scissor cut the hair out. You can do this easily by making a V shape on the bottom. No need to be perfect- it is Frankenstein after all!
Next, you can create his side bolts but cutting out two “T’s”. This is also a great time to cut out the white eyeballs. Once you have it all, start gluing it down!
Here is Phoenyxs adorable Frankenstein that he brought home and the one we recreated!
You can follow my Halloween Crafting boards on Pinterest, or skip ahead to Thanksgiving and Christmas so you do not miss a thing!
Thanks for allowing me to share a bit of our home with you.
