You can create cool works of art using glue as your drawing medium. The end result is a unique drawing that looks like a stained glass window. Try making more than one. The sky is the limit!

What You Need:

  • black (or other dark) construction paper
  • white glue
  • a pencil and oil (or chalk) pastels (or crayons)

What You Do:

  1. Gather your materials.

  2. Draw a picture onto construction paper, using a pencil.

  3. The picture can be of anything you wish -- just remember to keep it simple. In this case, we drew a pumpkin for Halloween with a checkerboard tablecloth.

  4. Next, trace over your pencil lines using white glue squeezed from a glue bottle. The thicker the better!

  5. Then, put the drawing in a safe place to dry for anywhere from 12 to 24 hours.

  6. After the glue is dry, fill in the areas created by the glue lines using either chalk or oil pastel.

Halloween Fun: Great Things to Make and Do
by Abigail Willis
Halloween will certainly be fun when children design their own jack-o'-lanterns, make frightening masks, build hanging skeletons, play gruesome games, bake spider (or bat) cakes, and read scary poems aloud.
