Halloween Monster Kids’ Craft

I think this may be the shortest post that I ever write. Don’t take that as a sign that I don’t care…because I care so much! It is my desire to see families crafting together. There are just so many benefits (if I need to convince you of that, check out THIS post). This is such a simple craft but fun to make and an amazing final result! You will absolutely love making this Halloween Monster Craft, and I have included a couple of tips to adapt it for any age group.

SUPPLIES FROM THE BAG

  • Paper plate (9-inch coated)
  • Glue stick
  • Tissue paper squares
  • Black construction paper
  • Scissors

Around here, it is my mission to make crafting with your kids actually do-able. So many of the “kids’ crafts” I see out there require several trips to Michael’s and, let’s be honest, could never actually be completed by a child without LOTS of adult help. So, I aim for this blog to be different. First, check out the “fill-your-bag” page so that you can prepare you craft kit so that you are ready to create together any time a spare moment arises (because I know how rare they really are). Then just browse through this site to find a craft that makes your kiddo smile. Any of them will do, and you have everything that you need to make every…single…one in your prepared kit.

Step 1

  • Cover the plate in tissue paper squares, adhering them with the glue stick
  • Make whatever design you want and use whatever colors you would like. There are no limits. Just make it your own!

Step 2

  • Cut a monster silhouette (or other Halloween shape) out of black construction paper
  • You can freehand draw the shape or print and trace (to make it a little easier, I tacked the silhouette, roughly cut around, onto the black construction paper using the glue stick and then cut through both layers, removing the printable when I was finished)

This craft allows for varying skill levels, from beginner to advanced. If working with a toddler or preschooler, you may want to cut out a silhouette in advance and just have them do the gluing of the tissue pieces. This is a great way to work on fine motor skills and crossing midline, if you set the tissue pieces opposite the child’s preferred hand. For kiddos with the ability to cut simple shapes, draw a basic bat to be cut out. The Frankenstein printable is for the next level of skills, and the zombie is for advanced scissor users.

Save this craft for later…Pin it to your favorite Pinterest board!
