Need a fun Kids Halloween Craft?
This would be a perfect craft to make at a Halloween party! The kids could make their own bag to keep their candy in. It’s fun and cute and will keep them busy! Just have everything ready to go and let them use their imagination and make their own monster!
List of Supplies:
- Colored craft paper
- Craft glue
- Template (printed)
Click the image below to print the template
Select a colored craft paper and cut out a rectangular shape (14.5 inch x 8 inch). By keeping about 0.5 inch intact along any one side of the width, fold the 14 inch into half.
Apply glue along the 0.5 inch part; fold and stick the glued part with the other open end of the folded paper.
Fold up 2 inches of the folded paper from any one open ends; do not fold the closed ends.
Keep the paper on a flat surface and open the bottom side of it from a side; this will create a triangular pattern on that side.
Similarly open the other side of the bottom and flatten the open parts neatly. This will create 2 open sides, like flaps.
Hold any one of the open sides and fold half of it downwards.
Similarly hold the other open side and fold half of it upwards, overlapping the open edge of the previous side. Apply glue along the overlapped parts to secure the bottom of the bag.
Notice the 2 squares formed on both sides of the bottom. Fold along the sides (left and right). Match the opposite corners of the squares on the sides of the bottom part to make perfect fold along the left and right side. This will create crease lines on both front and back side of the bag and a center line for each pair of creases.
Unfold the folds and pop open the bag.
Carefully tuck the center line (on both sides) inwards and the bag will be ready.
From the template print and cut out the eyes and teeth you like.
Take the bag and fold 2 inches from the top open end. Stick the eyes on the folded part, keeping about half of the eye outside the folded part.
Similarly glue the other eye.
Glue the tooth inside (between the 2 parts of the fold) the fold along the top open end. One by one attach the other details of the bat to complete the bag.
Allow the glue to dry.
