I whipped this up in a couple of hours today for a BooFest with friends that we attended this afternoon.


  • Tri-fold display board – the larger the better
  • Paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Box cutter

Tip: You can purchase the tri-fold display board from Michael’s craft store for $4.99. It’s the perfect height for a toddler party. Don’t forget your 40% off coupon to make it even cheaper.


Paint a Halloween scene (that wouldn’t be scary for little ones). Set it aside to dry.

Cut out holes for faces to poke through using a box cutter.

Tip – Poke 2 holes at either end of the middle section at the top, and use string to hang it from the eaves or a tree branch. It will stop it from toppling over if little ones push on it from behind. Alternatively, use a heavy board, cut 4 rectangles, and then a slit in the center of each. Put these underneath the frame to create a base. You will need 2 in the front and one on each side.

Here are a couple of photographs taken at the BooFest.
