Frankenstein Cylinders


One more Halloween post before I put the decorations away!
These are some cute, simple, one day lesson Frankensteins for the little ones that also teaches them about forms.
We reviewed our flat shapes and then talked about 3D shapes called forms and where you can see them in everyday life. I briefly discussed a kid-friendly version of Frankenstein’s Monster and then we made our cylinders.
First we cut the zigzag line across the black strip of paper and then glued it to the green. Then we added the face and all the Frankenstein-ish details. Finally, we glued the ends of the paper to make our form and I ha to re-enforce some of them with the stapler. It was a fun project to do and they just loved it.
