We read the book Crankenstein about an ordinary kid in a bad mood. Since Halloween is coming, I thought it would be fun to make a Frankenstein monster to go with the book and remembered how I used this same tissue paper technique to make a jack-o-lantern in second grade.

  • Square green paper plate (We found ours at a party supply store.)
  • Black tissue, cut into 1 inch squares
  • Unsharpened pencil
  • School glue
  • Google eyes
  • Black marker
  • Scissors
Draw a jagged line at the top of the paper plate.

Wrap a square of tissue paper around the end of an unsharpened pencil.

Dip the end in white glue and press the tissue paper covered pencil onto the paper plate.

Lift the pencil and the tissue paper should stay glued to the plate. Do this many times to fill in the area above the jagged line. This will be Frankenstein's hair.
