We had so much fun with our Frankenstein Footprint craft a few years ago I wanted to try a new Frankenstein craft with the kids. I bought these small green plates months ago. I knew they would be perfect for a Frankenstein paper plate craft. As time went on they ended up in a craft box in my office buried under other “to get to” projects. Well, I found them today while looking for something else. Since Halloween is a few weeks away we still have time to make them. So we set out to make the cutest Frankenstein paper plate craft we could.
Frankenstein Paper Plate Craft
Supplies/what we used:
black construction paper or cardstock paper
clear glue and glue sticks
small green paper plates
How to make a Frankenstein paper plate craft with the kids:
I started by gathering my supplies. I then took the black construction paper and cut out hair, mouth, bolts, and scars. I love that you only need 3 basic things to make this work, googly eyes, paper plate, and black construction paper.
Once I cut out enough to make 3 Frankensteins, I called the kids to the table. My kids are 2yrs, 4yrs, and 6yrs. The older 2 had no problems with this craft. I helped my 2 yr old with his craft.. They all loved how they turned out. My youngest just wanted me to keep shaking the plate to make his eyes move, lol.
You could make a Halloween banner out of these. You could even add a craft stick and make a paper plate puppet out of this fun and easy Frankenstein paper plate craft for kids. Now to see what we can come up with next with our green paper plates.
