Toilet Paper

Inspired by many of the PINteresting things I’ve seen, I’ve gone ahead and made my attempt on this run eco-friendly activity!

Spooky Spiders

  1. Cutting one toilet paper roll in half, this can create 2 spiders.
  2. Taking one of the halves, cut a one inch wide opening.
  3. Repeat same cut, opposite side of the roll.
  4. Cut 3 equal space cuts creating the legs of the spider.
  5. Taking black paint, paint the toilet paper roll completely black.
  6. Bend the legs of the spider out as you paint.
  7. Set to dry.
  8. Take as many goggly eyes, glue to the top half of the spider.

Spider
These crafty creepy crawlers can be spotted around the house, placed on the window ledge, staircase steps, or just to play around with! Create a gang of spiders!!

Construct a monstrous mash up of a toilet paper roll and paint to create Frankenstein! Happy, sad, confused, dazed, give him whatever facial expression your ghostly heart desires!

Frank

Frankenstein:

  1. Snip short cuts all along one of the sides of the toilet paper roll, creating the hair.
  2. Paint the top 3/4 of the roll black.
  3. Using a finer tip brush you can line Frankenstein up with proper bangs.
  4. The rest of the roll will be painted green.
  5. Set to dry.
  6. Glue two goggly eyes, and create facial expressions for Mr. Frank.
  7. Don’t forget to add stitchings to the cheeks.

Vampire Handprint

As always, I was on Pinterest searching up a good kids craft for my children and also for my sons 2nd grade class. I come into the classroom every Friday afternoon and do a craft. As a crafty class mom, I love doing these crafts. If I could, I would want to come in at least 2 or 3 times a week to do arts & crafts with them.

In the spirit of Halloween I found this great Vampire craft by Michelle from (Crafty Morning). This is such a great Halloween art project your children or students will enjoy!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Construction Paper (Colors: White, red, and black)

Tempra Paint (Colors: Brown, white, black)

Goggly Eyes

Paint Brush

Glue

Scissors

Supplies

Directions:

1.  For a nice realistic skin tone, you’ll need to mix the brown and white tempra paint.

2.  Once Mixed, paint skin tone color to the palm of the hand, as well as the thumb.

3.  Add black paint to the 4 leftover fingers, with a widows peak detail.

4.  Place painted hand on white construction paper, and set aside to dry.

5.   Take your red, and black paper and cut the body and collar of the vampire.

6.   Using scraps of white and red paper, cut out little triangles for the bowtie and white shirt.

7.   Glue your pieces together on white paper.

8.   By this time your handprint should be already dry, and ready to cut and paste.

9.   Once your handprint it cut out, glue your goggley eyes in place.

10.   Draw in a smile, and add 2 teeth like fangs. (Red or white using scraps of construction paper.)

At this point your vampire should be completely dry and display in the classroom or on the fridge!

Happy crafting!

(Insert vampire evil laugh here!) Ah, ah, ah, ah!
