Let the kids have some fun and get messy. You can change up Frankenstein’s face and let the kiddos put their own stamp on it too.

The best type of paint to choose for this activity is washable non toxic paint that’s suitable for little kids, such as (affiliate links) ready mixed Crayola paint, or finger paints.

If crafting with older kids, you can use green acrylic paint which will give a thicker coverage on the cardboard. Adjust the materials accordingly for the age group that you are crafting with.

Maybe make a whole cardboard Frankenstein family with different facial expressions and emotions? How will all of your friendly Frankensteins look like?!

This Halloween craft activity is a great idea for at home, in the classroom or even at your Halloween party craft table, if you don’t mind a little mess.
