Crafting With Kids: Popsicle Stick Frankenstein
This month's craft comes from Miss Marisa. She is very excited for Halloween because she loves monsters like werewolves, vampires, and Frankenstein. In fact, one of her favorite books is Mommy? by Maurice Sendak. Inspired by this book, she found the cutest popsicle stick Frankenstein craft perfect for Halloween.
First, you will need to put newspaper down on a table and you might want to wear an apron or old shirt in case you get messy! You will need about 8 popsicle sticks, a small piece of cardboard or card stock, a piece of white computer paper, and paint. The tools you will need are a paintbrush, glue, and scissors. If paint is too messy, you can always use crayons or markers.
First, you will want to put glue all over your cardboard or cardstock, and stick 7 popsicle sticks on top. This will be Frankenstein's face. Then, you will want to flip the craft over and glue 1 popsicle stick across the body. This will be Frankenstein's neck bolts. Turn the craft back over to the front, and color or paint Frankenstein's hair black. Then color or paint Frankenstein's bolts black as well. Finally, color or paint the rest of the popsicle sticks green.
Once the paint is dry, paint on a mouth, nose, and some stitches. For the eyes, take your piece of computer paper, and cut out white ovals for eyes. Then glue them to your Frankenstein... and voila! You have made your very own Frankenstein out of popsicle sticks!
If you want to use different colors other than green and black, do so! If you want to make your Frankenstein happy, sad, or mad, do so! You are the artist, and whatever you do, it will look awesome!
