Halloween Painted Frankenstein Pot

It's time to decorate your house for Halloween. This week, help your child turn an empty flower pot into a not-so-scary Frankenstein. It's a great place to keep her candy -- if she doesn't eat it all!

Materials Needed:
· Terracotta clay pot
·  Black, grey, or yellow construction paper
·  Paint
·  Clear acrylic sealer spray
·  Glue

What to Do:

Step One  Paint the rim of the clay pot black.

Step Two  Paint the remainder of the pot green.

Step Three  Let the paint dry.

Step Four  Now, on one side of the pot, paint Frankenstein's face.

Step Five  Once the paint is dry, spray the pot with the clear acrylic sealer.

Step Six  Cut two small T shapes out of the construction paper; these will be Frankenstein's bolts.

Step Seven  Glue the bolts to each side of Frankenstein's face, at the bottom of the pot.

Step Eight  Now, your child can use her Frankenstein to hold all her Halloween treats!
