Supplies Needed For This Werewolf Craft
You’ll need just a bunch of basic supplies for this werewolf themed art project. Here they are!
- Construction Paper (or cardstock)
- Fine Tip Black Marker
- Crayons, Markers or Colored Pencils
Directions For the Werewolf Line Study
Got all your supplies? Ready to get started on this fun filled art project? Here’s what you need to do. Start by downloading the printable using the link, and printing it out on a sheet of paper.
It is best to use construction paper, but just in case you don’t have it, you can stick to using regular printer paper too.
Ask your little one to fill in each section of the printout (except the eyes, teeth and the werewolf’s dress) with straight lines, using the fine tip marker.
Next, get out those crayons and color pencils and ask your toddler to fill in the sections with the appropriate colors. If he prefers to use his own choice of colors, let him- it is all about being creative and having fun right?
Just make sure you don’t use watercolor paints, as the ink from the marker will smear and ruin the project.
And that’s it, you’re done!
