Oil Pastel Haunted House Craft for Kids
Construction Paper (or cardstock)
Download and print out the haunted house template.
Carefully cut out all the pieces, following which colour cardstock to print on.
On a white piece of construction paper or cardstock, draw a circle (moon) with yellow pastels and then trace that circle with orange.
Use your fingertips to smudge the colours together.
Use shades of red and orange to finish filling in the paper, darker to lighter.
Blend, blend and blend some more!
Once finished, draw a border around the entire piece of paper with black oil pastel.
Blend the black pastel towards the middle of the paper.
Glue the fence towards the bottom of the paper.
Glue the house on top of the fence and the bats over the moon.
Glue the doors and windows onto the house followed by any ghosts you want to add!
Make this project even more unique by trying different colour combinations and adding some glitter!
