4th grade Halloween houses

We are getting an early start on Halloween this year in 4th grade!  We did these Halloween houses by drawing them together step by step in white colored pencil on black paper.  We discussed all the whimsial details they could add, such as pumpkins, ghosts, curly trees, black cats, and stars.  If you have students that do not celebrate Halloween, they can leave off the ghosts and jack-o-lanterns, and just have pumpkins for fall "funhouses." I reminded students that they shouldn't be too worried about getting their houses straight, since they should look stretched and whimsical on purpose!  They are turning out great!  Here are a few for you to enjoy! 


  1. These are fabulous! Your kids did an excellent job :) Are they colored with colored pencil? Can I ask what brand you use- the colors seem so vibrant!

  2. I hope you don't mind. I posted a link to this lesson on my blog for Art Sub Lessons. https://artsublessons.blogspot.com/2017/08/7-easy-halloween-lessons.html Jan
