Halloween cards

kids will love-making their own hand print ghost, hand print pumpkin and hand prints Frankenstein! And the best part is they are really easy to make!

What you will need;

Glue

Frankenstein
1. Fold your green card in half. Trace the hand print so that the pinky is on the folded part of the card. Cut out the hand print being sure to leave the pinky part uncut so that the card will open at this part.

2. Paint or use a sharpie to colour the top of the hand black to make the hair. Add some zig zag lines in the hair when painting.

3. Draw on the eyebrows and mouth.

4. Glue the googly eyes on top of the eyebrows.

Pumpkin
1. Fold your orange card in half. Trace the hand print so that the wrist part is at the folded part of the card. Cut out the hand print so that the wrist part is not cut and the card will open up at this part.

2. Draw the pumpkin eyes, nose and mouth using a black sharpie.

3. Cut out a small stem from a darker green and glue down.

4. Cut out a small strip of lighter green and wrap around a pencil to make it curl. Then glue down to the stem.

Ghost
1. Fold a piece of white card.

2. Trace your hand print so that the pinky is at the folded part of the paper. Cut out your hand print leaving the folded side where the pinky is so the card will open up. Watch the video tutorial at the bottom of this post for full details on how it opens!

3. Draw on a mouth and eyes with a black sharpie.
