Have your child cover the shoebox in a brown paper grocery bag in the same way she might cover her textbook.
Let her use tape to secure the covering in place and scissors to trim the excess paper.
Zombie apocalypses can be dangerous, so have her cover her kit in "yellow caution tape," yellow duct tape with permanent marker warning words.
Have her cut out a few squares and rectangles out of the red construction paper.
What sort of signs would government officials write if there was a real zombie outbreak? Have your child use her permanent marker to write words like infected, quarantined, and keep out on the red squares and rectangles.
Let her tape these signs on the outside of the shoebox.
Have her cover her small plastic containers with the green and purple construction paper, using tape to hold the paper in place and scissors to trim the excess.
Help her use her permanent marker to draw a skull and crossbones and other zombie-ish labels on the green and purple container covers.
Set her containers in the shoebox.
Have her combine glue and a few drops of food coloring in a bowl.
Let her use a spoon to mix the sticky liquid.
Help her drizzle the homemade “zombie drool” all over the containers and the outside of the shoebox.
All done! The only thing this zombie kit needs is some yummy lunch items.
