Spooky House Shadow Box
Updated: Jan 4
We created a cool Halloween project for kids 6 to 10 y.o.! It is a "Spooky House Shadow Box", made of cardboard and various types of papers. Each house will look very different as kids are offered different options to customize it just the way they want!
What's Inside the Box?
The kit has all the supplies for kids to start right on with the project: a precut cardboard box, various colored papers for the windows and door of the Spooky House, various colored papers to decorate the front and sides of the Spooky House, a paper plate for the yard & fence, a straw for the chimney, a choice of Halloween foam stickers and pipe cleaners, white glue and orange glitter glue, and 2 cute Halloween tea lights!
