Halloween is getting closer but you still have time for a few extra crafts to get into the spirit! This craft completed my Halloween family and was easy, fun and inexpensive! By the time we were done doing all of these 3 crafts, my daughter was painting like a pro and really doing better than ever with a paint brush. This craft, from my daughters High Five Magazine, October 2012 issue, inspired my two previous crafts. We finished with making a haunted house for all of them to hang out around. I will share that tomorrow.
Items needed: Paper toll rolls, scissors, miscellaneous paint colors, paint brush, googley eyes, black foam paper for mouth, hair and other add-ons, glue or hot glue gun.
Cut the paper towel holders into miscellaneous sizes.
Paint using different colors - use your imagination.
Let dry. Fold in sides to make horns.
Glue on googley eyes. Let dry.
Cut different shapes for mouths, hair and ears.
What we learned: To use our imagination with creating different looking monsters, colors and designs. It was my daughters idea to do a tie-dyed one and a rainbow one. Getting better at using a paint brush and filling in all the spaces as she painted. Creativity with colors and shapes of mouths and hair. Adults should do the cutting and use the hot glue gun.
