*Please note that there are 2 different versions:
One set that has all the werewolf pieces on two pages – best for use with 1-3 kids. The second set is best for use with a group of children and also includes the suggested color to use for printing the template directly onto colored printer paper. For example: all the fur pieces are on one page with “Print on Brown Paper’ and so on.
Each printable PDF set also includes two different writing prompt templates. One page with the bat and moon like pictured and one without (to give more writing space).
How to make the Paper Halloween Werewolf Craft
Download and print out the PDF templates. You can do this a few different ways. Choose one of the following options:
- Print templates onto thick white printer paper, cut the different pieces out, assemble and glue together. Color it as a werewolf coloring page.
- Print each page onto the color specified on each template using the second PDF version mentioned above in the italicized paragraphs. Cut and glue the different colored wolf parts together.
- Print onto white paper, cut the pieces out and then use them as templates to trace onto construction paper. Cut out and glue together.
You may now wish to glue it to a background construction paper sheet – making it a super cute werewolf craft or add it to the top of the Halloween writing prompt page.
My Pet Werewolf Halloween Writing Prompt
Ask your child or students to write about their pet werewolf. Anything goes! There’s no right or wrong way to write about their furry pet.
Here are some thought starters:
– What does the werewolf look like?
– Does it have a name?
– Does it go with you on fun or spooky adventures? Maybe it attends soccer games or even plays! Maybe it handed out Halloween candy or helps you with chores.
– What would you feed it and how would you take care of it?
– Tell a story such as the day he or she followed you to school or went through a haunted house by your side to help you feel less scared.
