Halloween Craft – Fridge Monsters

It’s almost Halloween!! It’s definitely one of my favorite holidays. I love all of the costumes, and the pumpkins, and the sweet little children knocking on my door begging for candy. I’ve been doing Halloween themed crafts with my son every week, trying to get him in the spirit. Here’s a fun, quick, easy, and non-messy activity to do with your kids.

All you need are a couple of paint sample swatches from a home improvement store, construction paper, googly eyes, magnets, and your imagination! Cut up the construction paper for your monsters’ features, add the googly eyes (you can also use construction paper for the eyes), glue your magnet to the back of the card and voila! Adorable little fridge monsters!
