Halloween Art Sub Lesson Plan - Creating Silly Monsters


“Creating Silly Monsters” is a fun lesson about monsters that you could use in an art center; as a regular art lesson; or for an art sub. It is super easy to teach and kids will love it. Check it out at TPT Shop: Centers and Early Finishers  It would be timely around Halloween but could be taught any time.

Art Sub Lesson Plans About Monsters


Look no further for easy elementary art lessons about monsters.
Here are lesson plans that would be fun to teach in October or at Halloween. They would all be perfect for art sub plans.

(Click on the images to see the blog posts.)


"There Be Monsters" is a lesson about sea monsters as they were drawn on  ancient maps.  
Students observe the old maps and monsters and create their own.


"Clown and Poodle" originally wrote about this lesson. It is based 
on the old song, "The Purple People Eater."
Ms. Pearce's Art Room has this lesson called "Circle Monsters." Kids love
tracing shapes. Here they can create original monsters just by starting with tracing circles.


This "Name Alien" lesson is by We Heart Art.  
This lesson ends up far from where it begins!

This sweet kindergarten lesson is by Artisan des Arts. 

"Her Dabbles" came up with this lesson called Silly Monsters. 

This Scribble Monster lesson came from "Art  with Ms. B"
And here's a bonus monster activity.  Not a lesson.  
"Create a Silly Monster" is a worksheet for early finishers.

Fun Art Sub Lessons for October




I found the most wonderful Halloween lessons that could be turned into art sub lessons.  Check these out!!!

Amy, at Makes and Takes, gives step by step instructions and many visuals for this lesson. She used black paper and oil pastel, but this could easily be done with crayon on a lighter paper.

At Panicked Teacher, Susie gives you step by step instructions on how to make this patterned pumpkin.  I believe she is a classroom teacher who has to supplement art instruction in her class for most of the school year.

I adore this lesson.  Jana's students (Room9Art) begged her for a Halloween lesson every year. She finally came up with this.  I believe a sub could teach this with the right directions.

This lesson, at ArtfulNest, was written for middle school.  You could write it up as a fifth grade lesson or sixth grade one.  You could also bring it down to the upper primary grades with a change of media.  Leave your subs some good visuals.  They could teach this!

Monster lesson.  There are lots of wonderful visuals and complete details here.  It is taught with paint and gadget prints, but you could so easily adapt it with crayons for your sub lesson. Visit Line FrØslev. There are wonderful things over there.

Here's one done for you already.  Step by step instructions were written here  by Ms. Crisco over at Crisco Art. Always a good type lesson to leave for a sub.

Here's a haunted house lesson that I created.  The information about it is in a post at Art Sub Lessons.  Art Sub Lessons - Halloween Haunted Houses

BONUS...Here's another one.  Yippee!!!  Creating Silly Monsters



art sub early finishers worksheet for halloween
Here's an extra goodie of my own.  Subs will love if you leave a worksheet for those early finishers!!!  This worksheet has an assortment of details for decorating their jack o' lantern. It also has a lightly drawn in pumpkin for them to use as a base.  As a complete lesson, students could draw on another sheet, their own pumpkin shapes and use the worksheet as a reference.  There is also a sheet with 3 sample decorated pumpkins.  $.99 at my TeachersPayTeachers shop:  Art Sub Lessons.

Art Sub Lesson for Halloween

Looky! Another fun and easy art lesson you can teach for Halloween! This, of course, can be taught anytime, but since it features pumpkins, it seems time appropriate. Based on the art of Yayoi Kusama, students design and pattern their own work.

Written as a creative center activity, it can also be used for an art sub.
