(This simple & fun Frankenstein Halloween craft for kids is totally adorable! The kids will love making this simple Frankenstein craft!)
My kids might be a teeeeeensy bit obsessed with monsters. The ghosts and witches on Halloween can be fun, but really they’ve got nothing on scary monsters! Maybe it’s because I call my super active boys my mini-monsters occasionally.
Whatever the reason, I knew that with Halloween fast approaching we needed to have some monstrous fun in our homeschool this week. I decided we’d make this super simple & fun Frankenstein Halloween craft for kids, and it was perfect!

Simple & Fun Frankenstein Halloween Craft for Kids
This Frankenstein Halloween craft was crazy simple to put together and the kids had a bast. Cap’n M even decided to use his like a mask for a while and he had a bunch of fun playing Frankenstein!
Why You Should Make This Frankenstein Halloween Craft for Kids
We have been working hard on fine motor skills in our homeschool this year, and the painting in this craft was the perfect way to practice! The kids worked their “pencil muscles” with the paintbrush, and they had to work on their attention to detail to make sure the whole plate was covered.

How to Make a Frankenstein Halloween Craft for Kids
First, you’re going to paint the paper plates green. Make sure they’re completely covered! We used a light green colored paint to make it look just like Frankenstein!
While your paper plate is drying, cut a half-circle out of construction paper to make Frankenstein’s hair. We used an extra plate to help guide our cutting to make sure it would fit correctly.
Make some jagged cuts out of the flat edge of your half-circle to look like strands of hair.

Once your paper plate is dry, glue your construction paper hair onto the top of your plate. Use a black sharpie to draw a Frankenstein face on. Don’t forget to add some fun stitches!
Isn’t that such a fun Halloween craft? Now your kids can use the plate as a mask or display it for the whole Halloween season!
