Step 1: Spooky Graveyard
The ghost and ghouls come out late at night in this spooky K'nex graveyard! Make the cemetery of your nightmares with a simple layout made of strategically placed K'nex pieces! With green connectors as bushes, grey pieces as tombstones, and light grey corner pieces as ghosts and goblins, this special scare zone us guaranteed to creep out your visitors!
Step 2: Abnormal Alien
Convince your neighborhood they are under attack from the outside with this Abnormal alien mask! Made almost entirely of green bendy rods, this mask allows great visibility while allowing you to pursue your extraterrestrial goals. With this mask on, you will find out who "your leader" is in no time!
Step 3: Table of DOOM
Take your anger out on a mini skeleton with this tiny saw table! Nothing says macabre like a full set of whirring blades! Use rubber bands to keep your victim from getting away, and listen to the nonexistent scream as you make the first cuts...
Step 4: Scary Bat
This vampire bat is ready to soar with a few simple K'nex orange bendy rods! Nothing is safe from the onslaught of the bats as they fly through the air, screeching and echo-locating their way into your nightmares! Beware when you build them!
Step 5: Freaky Friends
This skeleton, pumpkin, and spider trio is the best of friends! All of which being easy to build, these friendly freaks can make your Halloween party a bit more festive! For the spider, add cotton balls to act as webs and give this seven-lagged arachnid a nice new home!
Step 6: Creepy Coffin
Create a place to store all of your broken pieces with the K'nex coffin of doom! Although it takes a bit more time and a few more pieces to build, this coffin makes a great centerpiece or counter prop! Follow the pictures to build one correctly.
Step 7: Zombie Apocalypse
Using only three types of pieces, you can create a new end to the world as we know it! These "zombies" are on the lookout for brains as the wreak havoc in their miniature graveyard. Remember, aim for the head!
Step 8: Torch
Never be left alone in the dark again with this easy to make torch! Taking only five minutes to build, this handheld torch uses battery-operated tea lights to light your way through even the darkest haunted house!
Step 9: Witch and Broom
Flying through the night sky, this wicth crackles and screams as she brings fear to all in the neighborhood. Using only a few mini-K'NEX pieces, you can create a hanging decoration that will strike terror into all who look at your ceiling!
Step 10: Eerie Eyeballs
"Don't look now, but I think someone is watching you!" Make these simple eyes out of three knex pieces to give all of your party guests the "evil eye." Make as many as you want, and you can make a multi-clips monster!
