    Let’s Get Started!

    Arty Crafty Kids | Create a moon for our bat silhouettes using yellow and orange oil pastels.

    Draw a Moon

    Step 1: Using a piece of cardstock, draw a large dominating circular shape in the middle.

    Fill with a yellow oil pastel and use an orange pastel for outside of the circle.

    Blend the Colours

    Step 2: Using your fingers or a piece of cloth smudge the orange into the yellow to blend the colours.

    Arty Crafty Kids | Use a black oil pastel to add emphasis to the moon.

    Add Definition and Atmosphere

    Step 3: Trace the outer edges of the circle with black – this will add definition to our brightly coloured moon!

    Fill the surrounding area with spooky colours.

    Here, we’ve chosen shades of green and blue. Reds, purples and pinks will also work very well!
