Introduction: Halloween Cube Latern
This is another simple 'ible you can do with children (maybe 4th/5th grade).
Step 1: Materials
- Black think cardboard
- tissue paper (orange, yellow, red, purple)
- scissors and cutter
- led with batteries
Step 2: Dice
Draw a "dice" shape on the black cardboard. You can use an image of dice you can find online, or just as I do: use a square and draw the T shape. Pay attention to leave the right "wings" to glue the cube. In the photos you can see that I leave too many "wings", but it's ok, when you'll glue the cube, you'll cut the useless ones.
Step 3: Cat, Ghost, Pumpkin, Bat
Draw or copy the shapes of halloween theme. I chose cat, ghost, pumpkin and bat. Lets say that you know Halloween better than me, so you choose :)
Pay attention: the shape should be in the right direction when you close the cube.
Step 4: Cut
With cutter and scissors cut out the shapes.
If you do this with children, pay attention if you let them use the cutter. You can let them use a punch, that is safer even with small children.
Step 5: Tissue Paper
Glue squares of tissue paper over the shapes.
Step 6: Eyes and Mouth
Glue eyes and mouth on the outside of the shapes.
Step 7: Cube
Close the cube. Leave the cover openable, so you can put the led in.
Step 8: Light
I used a little led with changing colours and blinking light I already had at home.
