Hi Everyone! It's me, Inky. Today I'm going to teach you how to make Halloween cards with my friends, Violet and Sonali. First of all, you need
- newspaper and tape
- crayons or colored pencils
- a pencil
- a paintbrush for glue
- Halloween stickers
To start, take one of your cards and decide what you want to be on it. We decided on a pumpkin. Draw your design on the front of your card. You're going to fill in the drawing with glitter, so try not to get too detailed.
Next, pour a little glue into a dish. Use your paintbrush to cover the part of your drawing where you want the first color of glitter to go. You don't have to use a paintbrush if you are super awesome at gluing.
Here's the part where you need your newspaper! Carefully shake your glitter over your picture. Now you have to wait a few minutes for your glue to dry. Try telling some Halloween jokes while you wait. Here's a good one:
Q: Why don't skeletons go to see scary movies?
A: Because they don't have the guts!
When your glue is dry, carefully shake off the excess glitter. See how the newspaper came in handy?
Repeat the steps with your next color of glitter. We only used two colors, but if you want to do more, go ahead!
Ta-Da! Now you have decorated the front of your card. The next step is to do the inside.
Open up your card and use a crayon or pencil to write a cheerful Halloween greeting. If you are really creative, you could even put a little poem.
Spice up the inside of your card with a sticker! We chose a scary little werewolf. Then, sign your name in your very best cursive.
And that's the end! Try experimenting with different drawings and glitter colors- we also made skeleton and bat cards. Put your cards in envelopes and send them to all your friends.
Thanks for making Halloween cards with us!
Inky, Violet, and Sonali
