When autumn rolls around, my kids start to count down the day until Halloween, we know it's time to start making spooky crafts as the nights start to get darker. What I love about this vampire craft is how easy it is to make so it can be done by toddlers (with some help), preschoolers, and older kids! 

It doesn't need any fancy supplies or special skills, just some simple craft materials we're sure you already have and of course, our Vampire printable template (don't worry, it's free!) So... Let's get crafty!

STEP 5: Make a paper spring.

You'll need to form a paper spring now using the black L shape that you have just created. Fold the black strips one over the other until you get to the end of the strip and glue the other end to secure it in place. Let the glue dry.

Grab the black  trapezoid-shaped piece and glue into the centre of the red one. Form the collar by folding the pointed tips over the black piece. Glue in place. Attach the paper spring just above the collar using glue.

Take your purple circle and the black triangle. Glue the triangle to the top of the circle. Now create a face. Start by drawing a simple mouth with a marker, then add the teeth by gluing two white triangles. Next, add a pair of cute googly eyes!
