Let’s Make a Vampire!
Decorate the Vampire Template
Start by using your favorite paints, crayons or pens to color in the vampire: don’t forget that vampires live in the dark, so we don’t want any nice rainbow colors here! If you’re going for ultimate spook level, you need a pale face and a splash of red blood.
Cut out the Template Elements
When your vampire is colored in and dry, carefully cut out the elements from the template.
Then cut one strip lengthwise from a sheet of black 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 a Paper Strip
Stick the rectangle eyes into the middle of the strip of black card.
Let’s Secure the Eyes
Turn your vampire over. Now stick one of the thinner card strips vertically over the left eye – this will support your vampire’s moving eyes. Stick the other strip in the same way over the right eye.
Thread the Eyes
Now carefully slide the strip of eyes underneath the two thin support strips – be gentle!
