Chalk Drawings

  1. You will need black construction paper, colored chalk, and starch for this activity.
  2. Have your students create a Halloween picture with chalk. The black construction paper will give the picture a glowing effect.
  3. After the students have finished their pictures, spray them lightly with starch so the chalk doesn't smear.
  4. Students can attach another piece of construction paper to the back of these, staple on 3 sides and use them as a folder to store all of their Halloween "stuff."
