This shape vampire craft is a fun Halloween craft that combines creativity with math learning. Preschoolers, kindergartners and older kids will get a chance to review shapes like circle, triangle and trapezoid.
Use the vampire craft template I created or make your own to include specific shapes you want your kids to focus on. You can use any shape for the head, from square to hexagon and draw the vampire’s hair with a black marker.
When kids are finished with the craft, they can count how many shapes they used or how many of each shape. You can add a shape graph, like we did for our shape Frankenstein craft.
While this shape vampire makes a great Halloween themed bulletin board craft or a hallway display, in case you’re a teacher, you can also use it as a V is for vampire idea.
