  • Egg boxes

  • Google eyes
  • Varnish (optional)
  • Polyball
  • Model magic


  1. To make the bat cut out three cups from the box. Keep the long prongs on to keep the shape of the bat. Paint it black and stick on google eyes.
  2. Make the ghosts and the spiders by using a single cup from the carton. Paint them and add eyes. For the spiders legs simply push some pipecleaners through the side of the cup. Use two cups slotted into each other to make the pumpkin.
  3. For the horrible eyeball just draw or paint on the pupil, iris and the blood vessels.
  4. To make the gruesome finger just roll some model magic into a finger shape and bend it slightly .To make the nail shape a small amount of model magic and stick it on the tip of the finger. Paint the finger to finish it off.
  5. Give all the creatures and ‘things’ a coat of vanish. If you want you can label your box.
