CLIF Kid Bars Halloween Candy Bar Wrapper Template
You will need:
- 5 sheets of colored construction paper of your choice
- Halloween costume stencils (printable PDF)
- 5 CLIF Z Kid Bars!
- 10 googly craft eyeballs
- Black marker
How to make Halloween candy bar wrappers
CUT: Print out the Halloween costume stencils (thicker paper preferred) and cut out each one along the lines. Trace each one on the colored paper of your choice. Please note that there is no stencil for the mummy, just use a thin, 1/4 inch wide by 10-inch long strip of white paper. You can cut it off of the side of one of your stencil discard papers.
Also to note: The bat and ghost use the same stencil, so do the bat first, then cut the ears off on the dotted lines to make the ghost.
Decorate the Halloween wrapper template
DECORATE: Time to glue on the eyes and draw on the faces! Draw some of the details in on the face of the witch and the Frankenstein, you can follow the details in the photo above or create your own look! Then, glue on the googly eyes in the correct spot on each costume. When you are finished decorating, cut out each of your Halloween costumes.
FOLD: Place your CLIF Kid bar in the center of the cutout, just below the head. To assemble, start with the bottom end. Fold it upward, followed by folding in the left and right sides over the bar. These two should overlap. Place a little piece of tape on the inside or on top to secure all three sides. To be sure that the tape won’t show, I prefer to roll the tape backward so I could put it on the inside. Alternatively, you could use double-sided tape or glue.
We hope you and your family enjoy this Halloween craft!
