Dracula Paper Puppet Craft for Kids This Halloween!


I really love this project because it’s not only simple, but it really encourages kids to use their creative side to decorate Dracula in any way they want. For grown-ups looking for a fun and frugal way to decorate for Halloween, this craft is the perfect way to use up some of those seasonal craft supplies and spur your imagination!

If you’re looking for ways to involve your kids in the crafting hobby while inspiring them to get creative, projects like these are perfect for helping the gain the skills and confidence. Plus, it’s a fun Halloween themed craft they can share with their friends, or proudly display alongside the ghoulish decorations around the house!  

More Crafting Inspiration:

 

  • Pick up some fun Halloween stickers for little ones to add easily! Foam stickers are also a great option and are even easier to stick on. Dollar stores always have tons of options.
  • Buttons and pompoms would add a lot of fun to these guys and make them extra special. 
  • Glitters (yes the dreaded G word) is always good to have on hand for crafting! I prefer flitter glue than regular glitter (WAY less messy). 

If you do decide to have other items to glue on ensure you have some white glue on hand as well as those items typically need more than a glue stick to stick! Lastly, to make this crafting adventure even more exciting you can have your kids come up with a story about their Dracula. Have them put on a little play after and encourage them to use their imagination and keep them busy while they wait to head out trick or treating!
