Looking for an easy Halloween craft? These Frankenstein corner bookmarks come with a template. All you have to do is print and fold!

We came out with this easy craft after reading Even Monsters Need Haircuts by Matthew McElligott. This book features many different monsters, but since Frankenstein is on the cover, we decided to pick him.

Also, this activity is very simple and won’t make a big mess which makes it ideal for Halloween parties and playdates.
