Trick-or-Treat Paper City Halloween Craft

I’ve been so busy for the last two weeks, I haven’t had time to make many new crafts, so we printed out the Paper City style trick-or-treat scene from last year. The fall leaves were so nice in our yard today, the kids took the paper people outside to practice up on their trick-or-treat lines. So if you want a little Halloween project, feel free to print out the PDF template below. Happy October!

      Hola Ysthar! Me encanta ver tu frase “Kisses from Spain”!!! Es tan español lo de despedirse con besos, que es graciosísimo cuando intentamos algo parecido en inglés, a que sí? Un beso (o one kiss), Patricia

  2. Yesterday we used your “branch trees” idea to make a Halloween scene! We are filling our miniature forest with monsters and ghosts, and hanging tiny paper bats from the trees. I’ll have to print out these paper trick-or-treaters!

    1. Thanks everybody!

      Maiz – Awesome idea! You’ve got to send me a photo of that. I should definitely do that with the kids too. I’ve still got the branch tree toy on the top of my shelf. Perfect!

    My kids (5 and 3 years old) saw it and immediately wanted to make it. They enjoyed it very much though we don’t have halloween here. It has its own magic regardless of context.
    Thank you,

    Hi Joel, my class loves your paper city ideas! We’ve been using it in our classrooms for almost 2 weeks now. I’ve been wondering though, if you have a paper city theme for Christmas? :) Christmas is such a huge deal here in the Philippines, that’s why. Would love to add them to our collection.

    Thanks Joel, love your ideas! Awesome! :)
