I LOVE this lesson. They are so whimsical and so much fun!!!! (And my kiddos really enjoy doing seasonal things, too....I used to be SO anti-seasonal art, but somewhere in the midst of it all I found that it's possible to do seasonal art that ties in with a curricular standard..YAY!)
I give the students a 9x12" sheet of paper and a black marker, along with some ideas and choices in which to consider. I have them draw everything in silhouette, no details, etc. The only two things we draw together are the spooky house and the "Y" tree. Students then use a hole punch to punch out the white eyes. They draw black dots inside the circles and glue them on to make glowing eyes :)
I did this project last year using a 6 x 18 sheet of paper and they turned out great, too. This year we just decided to add in a spooky house, hence the change in paper size.
