We love Halloween crafts and this Shape Vampire Halloween Craft is such a fun way to combine crafting fun with learning fun this spooky season! The math vampire craft is made up of 9 different shapes and gives kids a great opportunity to learn about different 2D shapes and to consolidate existing 2D shape knowledge too.
Shape vampire art is easy to make with the printable template which comes in full colour and also black/white which children can enjoy colouring in and decorating themselves.
It’s great fun to cut and paste your own shape vampire and the finished pictures will make a wonderful spooky decoration for the classroom or home this Halloween.
When the children have finished their vampire Halloween craft, they can count the number of each different shape and record their findings on the worksheet.
Each Vampire is made up of the following shapes:

How To Make Shape Vampires

5 – As the kids glue on their shapes they’ll see their vampire picture start to emerge.
6 – To finish off their vampire art kids can glue on the octagon label and write their name.
7 – There’s an additional shape recording sheet included with the printable template. Kids can count the number of each different shape and record their findings.
