Halloween seems like the perfect time to create all kinds of friendly playdough monsters. Last year we turned a box into a haunted house to inspire some creative playdough Halloween fun.

To create the haunted house I covered a box in dark blue paper (we didn’t have any black at the time).  Cut some archways out of the box. Added some turrets (cardboard craft tubes covered in light blue playdough and added some small cardboard cones to the top. Voila – a house waiting to be filled with friendly monsters.

Together as a family, we made all sorts of weird and wonderful monsters to fill the haunted house. I love it when we are all creating together.
