Make a fun paper Frankenstein craft with kids and get ready for a family-friendly Halloween.
Halloween is a fun holiday. But it can also be scary for young children. The decorations, the costumes, the spooky noises. With our Halloween crafts for kids we want to explore the silly side of the holiday. So our paper Frankenstein craft has a big smile on his face and big silly eyes.
We love a good Frankenstein craft . We have created quite a few of them throughout the years.
Frankenstein Crafts for Kids:
We also turned Granny Smith apples into healthy Frankenstein treats for kids to hand out at school to their classmates and friends.
If you like our Frankenstein apple treat idea, make sure to check out this collection of 13 healthy classroom treats. This is a great list if you’re looking for allergy free Halloween treats.
More non-scary Halloween crafts:
Our paper Frankenstein craft comes with a template and all you need for it is paper, scissors and glue. That’s why this Halloween craft is great for preschoolers and kindergartners to practice their scissors cutting skills.
The craft can be used for the Halloween party at school and it can also make a great classroom decoration.
Make it at home with your kids and let your little ones decide how they want to draw Frankenstein’s mouth. They may want to make the monster look mad or sad instead.
