Arts and Crafts Materials You’ll Need

  • Cardboard paper towel roll tubes
  • Scissors
  • Clear-drying school glue
  • Craft felt
  • Tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Tissue paper

How-To Art-Making Steps

  1. Choose a Halloween character to create—such as a ghost, mummy, witch or vampire.
  2. Cut the paper towel tube in half. This gives your child two pieces of cardboard to transform into Halloween characters.
  3. Select a color of craft felt to match the character. Your child can match white felt to a mummy or ghost and black felt to a witch or vampire.
  4. Glue the felt to the outside of the paper towel tube. Leave a few inches at the top empty for the character’s face.
  5. Paint the character’s face at the top of the tube. Your child can also use tempera paint to add accents or embellishments to the character’s costume.
  6. Add hair, a cape or anything else the Halloween character needs with the tissue paper. Cut and glue the paper to the tube. If your child chooses to make a mummy, cut the tissue into thin strips and wrap it loosely around the entire character.
