Make a Halloween fun facts foldable with your child this October! There's more to Halloween than just chowing down on candy. Help your child learn a few Halloween fun facts with a fun and simple art project.

What You Need:

  • Poster board
  • Glue
  • Black construction paper
  • Orange construction paper
  • Black paper
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Halloween stickers

What You Do:

  1. Have your child use scissors cut out a large rectangle from the poster board.
  2. Help him fold the ends in until they meet in the middle. He should now have a "foldable" with three sections.

  5. Put a light coat of glue on the front and back of the outer flaps.
  6. Have him attach the orange pieces to the poster board.
  7. Next, it's time to cover the center section of the poster board. Help your child trace that section on black construction paper.
  8. Have him cut out the traced area.
  9. Help him glue the black construction paper on the center flap of the poster board.
  10. Let your child cut three circles out of orange construction paper. Don't worry if the circles are the same size or perfectly round.
  11. Help him glue the circles to the black center section of his poster board.
  12. Does your child know any fun facts about Halloween? Check out a book from the library or search the Internet for some cool, bizarre and fascinating facts about this "haunted" holiday.
  13. Have your child write his facts on the orange circles.
  14. Let him finish up his poster with holiday-themed stickers like spooky bats or slithering snakes.
  15. Have your child proudly display his foldable. Now his family and friends can know all about Halloween!
