DIY Haunted House Directions
Crafts are so good for kids. This craft particularly is a great way to build fine motor skills, listening skills, and encourage creativity. Additionally, children learn to follow instructions with these easy to follow step-by-step directions. Here is what you need to do to make this cute DIY haunted house:
Step 1: Download Materials
Download and print out the haunted house template. Carefully cut out all the pieces, following which color cardstock to print on.
Step 2: Get Creative With Pastels
On a white piece of construction paper or cardstock, draw a circle (moon) with yellow pastels and then trace that circle with orange. Use your fingertips to smudge the colors together.
Use shades of pink and purple to finish filling in the paper, darker to lighter. Blend, blend and blend some more!
Step 3: Create a Border
Once finished, draw a border around the entire piece of paper with black oil pastel. Blend the black pastel towards the middle of the paper.
Step 4: Glue Everything Together
Glue the fence towards the bottom of the paper. Then, glue the house on top of the fence and the bats over the moon. Next, glue the doors and windows onto the house followed by any ghosts you want to add!
Make this project even more unique! Try different color combinations and add some glitter!!!
