Make a fancy (and funny!) chocolate bar cover for someone special! Last year we were inspired by the idea of using bandages to make a mummy to cover a chocolate bar for Halloween and we wanted to try something of our own– especially after grandma sent us some faux fur! The idea with this activity is for the child to re-use scraps of materials and supplies you already have. This is only a starting point. We would love to see what you come up with! You could do something playful, spooky… Materials Turkey Crepe paper Scissors Glue Clear tape Pencil/ eraser Ruler Buttons Foam Trim Construction paper Chocolate bar Monster Faux fur Cardstock Scissors Craft glue Clear tape Pencil/ eraser Ruler Craft eyes Foam Construction paper Chocolate Bar Directions Turkey Lay your chocolate bar out on the edge of your construction paper. Measure and cut out a strip long enough to cover the chocolate bar and wrap around so that it tapes shut on the back as shown. Use a pencil and ruler to make this easier for younger children. This creates a base for you to glue onto. Cut out layers of crepe in the shape as shown to make simple feathers. We traced our fingers to make tail feathers, cut out some simple wings etc. Glue the crepe layers on the cardstock, starting at the bottom, overlapping as you go up. We put a piece of trim at the bottom and a straight strip of crepe at the top to finish it off. Cut out a beak from crepe, foam or felt and glue it onto your cardstock, along with button eyes etc. Give your turkey to a friend, teacher of family member for Thanksgiving! Monster Lay your chocolate bar out on the edge of your construction paper.

This creates a base for you to glue onto. Cut lengths of the faux fur (or a section the size of your chocolate bar if it comes in that form). Glue it onto your cardstock. Add eyes made of felt, buttons or craft eyes. We added a few foam fangs. For the ears we glued the faux fur onto triangles of cardstock to give them shape and then onto the face. Give it to someone special. (Wouldn’t this be fun to hide in a drawer for a scary and sweet surprise?!) Purpose Thinking of others Safety Notes Exercise caution when using scissors. Buttons and craft eyes can be potential choking hazards. Be sure to keep them out of reach of children 0-3 or those who tend to put them in their mouth.
