Tin Can Monsters
Halloween is a fun time for the kids to make crafts like these Tin Can Monsters. The supplies are inexpensive and you probably have most of them in your craft room already. So get the kids together and get the house set up for a fun craft.
Trivia: Tin and aluminum cans are recyclable, but only slightly more than half of cans used in the United States are recycled.
Scraps of Black Foam or Construction Paper
Tacky Glue or Hot Glue
Start by cleaning your tin cans thoroughly and let dry.
Paint cans in desired color with a sponge for even color and let dry.
Using picture as a reference, glue the eyes and various features onto the cans with hot glue or tacky glue and you have a parade of fun monsters for Halloween.
