Monster Wreaths

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.

Remembrance Day is a memorial day commemorated on 11 November and it marks the end of the First World War. It is a day to mourn and every year on the 11th hour of the 11th day on the 11th month we fall silent for 1 minute to remember those who served their country during the war. To commemorate Remembrance Day we have 8 new Remembrance Day Posters that can be used as a display within the setting. These posters share images and information and can be used to support discussions with children about Remembrance Day including information on Remembrance Day traditions, importance of poppies, about Remembrance Day etc. It's important we spare a moment on this day to remember those brave enough to serve our country.
