  • 1.

    Cut out the middle of a large piece of construction paper with Crayola® Scissors. For a ghostly effect, make the edges uneven or wavy. With Crayola Glue Sticks, attach this trim on the outside of a contrasting color of construction paper to form the placemat border. Decorate the edging with Crayola Glitter Glue. Dry.

    Cut another piece of construction paper in half, creating two wide rectangles. Starting at the narrow end, fold one rectangle back and forth to make four wide pleats, like an accordion. With a Crayola Erasable Colored Pencil, sketch a ghost on top of the folded paper, making sure it touches the edges several times, in the same way you make paper dolls. Leave the paper folded while you cut out your five ghosts, being careful to leave the ghosts attached at the folds. With Crayola Markers and Glitter Glue, put a face on each ghost and write one letter of the word Happy.

    Cut another paper rectangle, about twice as long as the first. Fold it with eight pleats. This makes nine sections on which to write the word Halloween.

    Glue the cut-outs to your placemat. Ask an adult to cover with clear plastic adhesive, such as Con-Tact® paper, so the placemat can be wiped with a damp cloth. To make napkin rings 1. Cut a recycled cardboard roll into as many napkin rings as you need. 2.
