Ok do it’s a bit of a mouthful but this Frankenstein paper bowl craft is perfect for younger kids who want to get on with making something and don’t want to wait for paint to dry! There’s also a couple of sneaky benefits to making this Frankenstein craft this way too, plus of course it’s a lot of fun!

Paper bowl (although a paper plate would be absolutely fine if that’s what you have at home)

Start by covering your paper bowl in glue, I’ve used PVA glue for this but a glue stick should also be fine.
Next up tear up some green tissue paper and stick this all over your bowl for Frankenstein’s face. As an aside I really couldn’t decide whether to refer to this as a Frankenstein craft (which is what my kids would call it) or Frankenstein’s Monster (which my ‘I wrote way too many essays on this for my degree’ self is happier with.) I’m still not sure what to go with and I’ve changed it three times already- what would you do? Either way tissue paper is a great sensory material to work with and tearing is great for fine motor skills.
Once you’ve made Frankenstein’s face green next up if adding the features – a great way for kids to practice their scissor skills. Cut out some hair, eyes and a mouth and glue these on, you could add bolts too if you wanted. I’ve done the mouth as a few rectangle shapes which are easier for kids to cut out.
