Monster Craft Materials

Only a few materials are needed to make your monster pumpkin, making it the perfect Halloween craft for kids.

White construction paper I like to use the 12 x 18 size



Step 1

Hold your construction paper vertically and fold it in half horizontally.

Step 2

The next thing you are going to do is fold the paper one more time. Hold the paper so that the original old crease from step 1 is at the bottom.  From the top, fold down the top layer of the paper so that it touches the fold.

Step 3

Draw a pumpkin or whatever you choose to draw in the middle of the paper.  The drawing needs to be in the middle of the folds on the paper.

Step 4

Open the paper so that it is long ways.  Draw lines going down on each side so that the line connects the top and bottom of the pumpkin.  Draw monster teeth for your pumpkin.

Step 5

Fold the paper back up.  Now it looks like a cute little pumpkin, open it out, and it’s a monster pumpkin.  Instead of a pumpkin, you can draw a monster, animal, or whatever your creative mind thinks of.
