Green Witch

What You Need:

  • Small terra cotta pot
  • Black and green tempera paint
  • Paintbrushes
  • Medium styrofoam ball
  • Black construction paper
  • Googly eyes (we used orange!)
  • Black yarn
  • White glue, or a low-temperature glue gun
  • Thin black permanent marker
  • Mini stapler

What You Do:

  1. Have your child paint the terra cotta pot with the black paint, and the styrofoam ball with the green paint. Set them aside to dry.
  2. Help show them how to make a cone with the black construction paper. Encourage your child to make their own cone to top the witch's hat. Staple it in place and cut off any excess paper.
  3. Encourage them to cut out a circle for the base of the hat. Help your child glue the cone to the circle to create the witch's hat.
  4. Add yarn to the top of the styrofoam ball to create hair for the witch. You can set the ball in the mouth of the pot so it stays in one place while you're working on it!
  5. Glue the hat on top of the yarn.
  6. Have your child glue the googly eyes in place and draw a mouth on the witch.
  7. Flip the terra cotta pot over, so the bottom is at the top. Glue the witch's head onto the base of the pot.

Is the witch a good witch, or an evil witch? Set your witch where it can greet trick-or-treaters!
