Finally, make the crow’s legs. We made each of the crows legs differently. To make the legs look like the one in the video, place two yellow rectangles in an off-centered “x”. Glue them together then cut off the excess paper on the right side of the “x”.

Repeat these steps for both legs.

Glue the completed legs behind the crow’s body, on the circular part, just below the wing.

Halloween Unit Study

Want to make a whole week dedicated to learning and exploring with a Halloween theme? Halloween is a great time to have some fun with your kids and help them practice things like fine motor skills, shapes, letter recognition, creativity, and more!

We’ve put together a list of some great Halloween crafts and activities that are sure to get your little ones excited while also giving their brains a workout. Read on below to get your planning done in an instant.

Halloween Children’s Books

Halloween is such a fun holiday! When kids are little, it’s a great idea to start a Halloween unit study by reading some fun Halloween children’s books. It’s always so much fun to see their little faces light up as they read about ghosts, witches, and goblins. And of course, they love the costumes and candy too!

But there were also some great benefits to starting a unit study with books. First of all, it helps everyone get in the Halloween spirit and got excited about learning.

Secondly, it allows a space for great family time as you read and discussed the stories together. Lastly, it helps prepare kids for the upcoming Halloween activities by teaching them about the holiday and its traditions.

If you’re looking for a fun way to start your family’s Halloween celebrations, why not try reading some Halloween children’s books together?
