An Activity for School-Age:
During Halloween, even plain old boxes come to life as spooky characters!
Before You Begin:
Bring these creatures to life by gathering a shoe box, construction paper, paint and a wide variety of collage materials to create unique and spooky creatures.
To cultivate creativity and imagination with a unique holiday craft.
Feed these creepy creatures as you go trick-or-treating!
Let's Get Started
Create a mouth by cutting a "U" shape from just below the shoebox opening.
Cover the shoebox with paint, collage, paper or any other materials and allow to dry completely.
Cut teeth out of white construction paper and add to the top and bottom of the opening of the shoebox.
Add pom-poms to the opening of the box like lips.
Create giant eyes by cutting out pieces of construction paper and gluing to the top flap of the box.
Continue to decorate your monster box using glitter glue, buttons and any other materials desired.
You can prop open your box by adding a craft stick to the inside of the box with tape so that the top flap of the box sticks up above the bottom of the box.
