How to Make a Trick-or-Treat Paper Toy

| More

Today I have a fun and festive Halloween craft.  It can be either a spooky Halloween decoration as well as a fun Halloween toy for the little ones.  In this post I’m going to show you how to make a Trick-or-Treat Paper Toy.  Using the 4 templates included in this craft you are going to make a little town with people that you can actually pretend they are going Trick-or-Treating.  Kids love pretending and even more than that they will love pretending to trick-or-treat with this toy because they made it themselves.  Let’s get started.
