Category Art and Craft

This Halloween, create a monster wreath to hang in the room. 

Materials Need: 

  • Paper plate
  • cotton balls
  • black paper (cut into small circles to fit onto the cotton balls)
  • white cardboard (cut into triangles as teeth)
  • Paint
  • Yellow cardboard
  • scissors
  • glue

What to do: 

  • Cut a circle from the middle of a paper plate so it creates a wreath.
  • Have child paint around the "wreath". It can be any colour as this is the monster face. 
  • After the paint dries, child glues the cotton balls on top of the monster face. 
  • On top of the cotton balls, child glues black paper circles (to create the pupils). 
  • The white triangles are glues in the middle of the wreath to create the monster teeth. 
  • Glue to horns on.
  • Hang them in the room, or use them as part of a monster theme Halloween display. 

Hints and Tips: 

  • Have the materials ready, so toddlers can create their own monster wreath as well. 
  • Use googly eyes instead of cotton balls for the eyes. 
  • Have different colours paint for the face, to create colourful monsters. 
  • Add a dash of glitter.
