Kid's Halloween Craft

A few months ago, Pgh Momtourage was lucky enough to be paired up with a fantastic intern who is a student at Pitt. Each week, Robyn works hard to find events around our region for our Pittsburgh event calendar. This week, she is showcasing a fun Halloween garland to make with your kids!

Dress up your home with this easy Halloween garland! This garland is made with toilet paper rolls and a few other craft supplies for an inexpensive and kid friendly craft.

* Toilet paper rolls
* Kids paint
* Googly eyes
* Construction paper (for the bat wings)
* Glue
* Scissors
* Hole punch
* Finishing line such as yarn, fishing line, twine, etc.
* Tape, hooks, nails (basically something to hang your garland from)

1. Paint the tube black
2. Glue on the googly eyes
3. Add an upside down smiley face, then paint two triangles for fangs
4. Draw out bat wings (Doesn't need to be perfect!!!)
5. Cut the wings out
6. Glue the wings to the back of the toilet paper roll

1. Paint the tube green
2. Draw a hairline and paint that area with black paint
