Halloween Craft- Witch's Face from a Footprint

Halloween Craft- Witch's Face from a Footprint

Make a very simple witch's face from your child's footprint and keep it year to year as a keepsakes. It is also a great craft to practice fine motor skills such as cutting and drawing shapes - and - facial expressions.

Classified: Medium and is great for the preschool aged child.

What you need:
  • Brown or black yarn.
  • Black and green paint
  • Green O cereal such as Fruit Loops
  • Ziti noodles
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Black pipe cleaner
  • Black paper
  • White paper or cardboard to print your witch's footprint onto
  • Glue
  • Yellow or white crayon
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrushes

What to do:
1. Paint your child's footprint green and print it upside down onto a piece of paper or cardboard. Allow to dry.

2. Paint several pieces of dried ziti noodles black.

3.  In the meantime, cut a triangle out of black paper and have your preschooler draw stars and a moon on it using a yellow/white crayon.

4. To practice cutting, have your preschooler cut several 1" pieces of yarn for the witch's hair.

5. Assembly: Glue the pieces of hair to the side of the witch's head, glue on the witch's hat, eyes and nose (green O cereal) and the painted noodles to form the witches robe.

6. Discuss how a scary witch's face may look. Make it more interesting by having your preschooler demonstrate the scary look to them self in the mirror. Bend and form the pipe cleaner into a scary position and glue to the witch's face.
