Picked out your four characters? Now we are ready to begin!
Decide which little creatures you want on your mobile. Draw a template for each in pencil.
For our example we are creating a jack-o-lantern, black cat, witch and ghost.
Create your 4 creatures out of the construction paper. Make them flat cut outs, but make sure they are the same on both sides – so you can see it from all angles.
Punch a hole on the top of each creature. Make these holes in the center of each one so they are not tilted on your mobile.
Cut the piece of Bristol board into a long rectangle. Decorate this with the words “Happy Halloween” or with Halloween symbols.
Take the Bristol board and bend it into a circle shape. This is the base of your mobile. Glue it in place.
Punch 4 holes in it, equally around the circle.
Cut four lengths of string. They can be the same length or slightly different depending on how you want your creatures to hang from your mobile.
Tie one piece of string to each of your creatures.
Attach each creature to one of your punched holes in your ring.
Also, punch two holes across from each other on the top of the mobile. Feed another piece of string through each end – tying each end of the string to each hole.
This will be to hang your mobile up.
Now that you have created these Halloween crafts for kids, just choose the place you want to hang it, and your all set for Halloween night!
Why not make the creatures 3D and have a picture on each side.
