Sweet haunted house

Sweet haunted house-1


Set on a windowsill or displayed on a bulletin board, this haunted house
will be the perfect addition to your Halloween décor!

1. Gather your material. You will need cardboard, black construction paper, purple Fun Foam, chalk, white glue and/or hot glue, scissors, and Halloween cake decorations.

2. Glue the black construction paper on the cardboard to make it stronger. If needed, cut the black construction paper to make it the same size as the piece of cardboard.

3. Fold each side of the construction paper towards the centre as shown (there is no need to measure, haunted houses are always crooked!).

4. Cut a small rectangle on either side, near the top of your haunted house. Once again, they don't need to be symmetrical.

9. Finally, glue the Halloween cake decorations on your haunted house to decorate it. This is a great fine motor skills exercise since the candy pieces are often quite delicate. They will need to be handled with care. Be sure to have extras on hand (beware of allergies).
