Find out below how to make our ‘Spooky Skittles’ craft game, great fun for all the family on Halloween.
What you will need:
- Toilet rolls (the cardboard part)
- A pair of scissors
- Felt pens
- Pipe cleaners
- Card or paper
- Toilet roll paper
- Wool or string
- Googly eyes
- A small ball
If there are items you are unable to get, there are alternative suggestions in the method below.
Step 1 – Plan out what Halloween characters you would like to make and make sure you have what you need to make these. Be creative or select your ideas from the ones we have made in the list below.
Step 2 – Paint the toilet rolls in the colour you require and leave to dry. If you don’t have paint, you can always colour in some paper, use coloured card or cut up coloured pieces from old magazines and wrap that around.
Step 3 – Once the toilet rolls are dry, you are now ready to turn them into your spooky characters. Draw on their face, adding googly eyes if you have them for added effect. Then add on any pipe cleaners, cutting them to size or create additional pieces out of card and stick them on to bring your Halloween character to life.
Step 4 – Leave your characters to dry for a few hours or overnight, then once they are ready you can begin your game. Line up the Spooky Skittles and take it in turns to roll the ball into them, seeing who can knock the most over. You can use the characters as decorations once you’re finished playing with them.
See below for the method to make each individual character…
