Easy Frankenstein Decorations

(4 1/2 Years)

Wild One asked that we decorate for Halloween during Labor Day- LABOR DAY- weekend!   That's right, early September and we are decorating for Halloween.  They were so excited when I told them that we could start putting up all of their decorations, I wish I had it on film.  They are hilarious!

Well, after we put up all of our decorations, I realized- I don't have a lot of Halloween decorations.  Which is just fine, because the next question from Wild One was to make new decorations.  It's time to open up my Pinterest board and search.  As soon as Wild One saw the Frankenstein decorations, from Allison at No Time for Flashcards, his decision was made.  
We save our cardboard tubes (paper towel and toilet paper rolls) for projects.  I'm so glad we had a bunch on hand, because these little guys are so much fun to make and are a perfect project for this age.  

Materials Needed:
Cardboard tubes (toilet paper or paper towel rolls)
Black markers
Green dot markers
Googly eyes
School glue
Golf tees

Draw a black line around the tube, about a third of the way down the tube.  This will be the guide for their Frankenstein's hair.  Let the kids color in the hair.

 Use the green dot markers to color in the rest.

 Time to make his grin- remember the stitch marks.

Hee hee- a little sorting now.  There are four sizes of goggly eyes in there.  

 Add two drops of glue for the eyes. 

Affix the eyes to Frankenstein.

Make tiny slits in the hair with scissors.

Press down the hair.

I punctured holes for the bolts (golf tees), and then let them push the tees through the pre-made holes.
Little Miss decided her Frankenstein needed a white puffy skirt.
