Spooky Goofballs

These guys might look square, but they’re a lot of fun at Halloween parties!

You need:

  • 1 or more Pebbles cereal box

  • Construction or wrapping paper (the larger the better) in halloween colors

  • Scissors

  • Glue

  • Markers

  • Clear tape

  • 2 push pins

Here’s what to do:

FRANKENSTEIN

  1. Tape the top of the empty box shut.
  2. Wrap the box, like a present, with green paper.
  3. Cut a strip of black paper the width of the box and cut the bottom edge so that it has fringe. Draw a zigzag mouth, scars, and cut out white half circles for the eyes (color in the pupils with a black marker). Don’t forget to add a massive unibrow.
  4. Glue your facial features into place.
  5. Press a push pin into each side of the box, low down where Frankenstein’s neck should be. Put a little bit of glue on the inside edge of the push pins to keep them in place.

DRACULA

  1. Tape the top of the empty box shut.
  2. Wrap the box, like a present, with purple paper.
  3. Cut a strip of black paper the width of the box and cut two half moons side-by-side to create Dracula’s widow’s peak. Cut out white half circles for the eyes (color in the pupils with a black marker), add the black paper unibrow, and make a mouth in any shape you like, adding red fangs to make him even creepier.
  4. Glue the facial features into place.

Don’t stop there! Using other colors of paper, cut out eyes (be creative—your character can have one massive eye or 20 small ones), a mouth (lots of teeth!) and anything else you think your goofball needs. Hair, eyebrows, a mustache—the options are endless.
