Let’s Make Frankenstein!
Decorate the Frankenstein Template
Start by using your favorite paints, crayons or pens to color in Frankie.
Glue the Eyes to the Paper Strip
When the Frankenstein template is colored in and dry, carefully cut out the elements from the template.
Then cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of colored A4 card – it needs to be the same thickness as the rectangle eyes on the template.
Finally, cut two more thin strips of card, each three or four inches long.
Secure the eyes to the center of the long cardboard strip.
Add the Support Strips
Turn Frankenstein over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support your paper toy’s moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
Slide the Moving Eyes
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
