How We Did It
Cut out the various shapes you'll need to piece together the bat,
pumpkin and Frankenstein. I used black craft foam for lots of the pieces
but you could use black card stock if that's what you have available.
Black felt worked well for Frankenstein's lovely hair.
children I like to have all the pieces cut out ahead of time so they can
just have fun gluing everything to their plates. Older children will
enjoy doing the cutting themselves or even adding the faces using
For the bat you will need a little bit of white craft paint which isn't
pictured in the supply photo above. Paint the bat's mouth first so it can
dry, then add the wings, ears, googly eyes, and fangs.
Create the rest of your paper plate Halloween
characters as illustrated in the main picture.
Happy Halloween, everyone!
