Frankenstein Plate Halloween Craft

I love cheap and easy activities for holidays. Here’s one of my favorites for use in the OT clinic, at home, or in the classroom. The supplies are easily bought in bulk or for cheap. If your child has executive function difficulties or is a visual learner, provide a visual of a picture or an actual example of the craft for each step.

Supplies 

  • Green Paper Plates (Dollar Tree)
  • Black Foam Paper
  • Black Electrical Tape
  • Glue Stick
  • Googly Eyes

 

Take your black foam paper and cut out  Frankensteins Hair. This makes a perfect cutting exercise for little ones! Just have them cut out triangles. For added fun, encourage kids to make different shapes and styles of hair!

 

 

 

 

 

Once you have hair, take your glue stick and swipe it a few times on the back side of the black foam paper hair.  

Glue the black foam paper hair onto your green paper plate.

Now, it’s time to glue on those eyes.

 

 

 

 

Now take your black Electrical Tape and cut a piece long enough for Frankenstein’s mouth. If you want a more narrow mouth, cut the piece of electrical tape in half (the other half can then be used for the bandage on the forehead).

Tape the electrical tape mouth onto your green paper Plate.

 

With more electrical tape, cut into a bandage for Frankenstein’s head.

…….just like that, you now have a Paper Plate Frankenstein! Makes one perfect Halloween Craft!
