If there’s one thing we all need right now, it’s a little bit of fun! Take some time this week to create some painted paper masterpieces, pull out your pipe cleaners, and get excited for Halloween weekend.

Monsters – 15:24
Asymmetrical Monster – 32:17
This Halloween Spark-tacular is all about creating special memories with an easy walk-through tutorial. These happy art projects (perfect for ages 5-12) will help inspire their imaginations and pick up new techniques along the way!
Each project will cover elements like SHAPE, LINE, PATTERN, & SYMMETRY, all while keeping your students engaged and creative for a full class session.
AND, there’s many opportunities for children to create their own unique monsters, either by changing their color and shapes, or deciding what kind of features they’d like to have for the face and body.
To get started, it helps to have the inspiration guide, so kids can see all the different options for building their monsters.
Grab your Monster inspiration handout below and let’s get started!
Before you play the video for your students, you’ll want to have your painted paper dried and ready. If you need help preparing your painted paper, check out our blog on How to Make Painted Paper.
This can be prepped in advanced by you or your students.
If you can’t create painted paper beforehand, no worries! Colored sulphite paper works just fine.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
– 12″ x 18″ colored sulphite paper (including orange for pumpkins)
– 9″ x 3″ colored paper scraps, including painted paper for monster arms and legs
– Paper scraps of any kind (newsprint, craft paper, painted paper, glitter paper)
– Glue stick
– Pastels or crayons
– *Optional: hole puncher & craft pipe cleaners (for hanging)
Your students will love creating these festive projects as Halloween approaches! Share the spark-tacular results with us on Instagram by tagging @deepspacesparkle.
