I had seen a few different examples of this type of tint and shade lesson on Pinterest, mostly done with a cityscape or a single tree silhouette. I had been saving these craft foam haunted houses for at least 2 years and was determined to incorporate them into some type of activity. After reading In A Dark, Dark Wood with my class, the two ideas seemed a natural fit!
We then attached the foam houses to the bottom of the paper. Next we used black markers to draw some spooky trees. The kids were instructed to keep the trees shorter than the house to make sure the scale of the drawings fit with the size of the house.
The final touch was colouring in the windows with a white pencil crayon.
It all made for a wonderful October display.
