  • Empty milk cartons (the BIG ones are best!)
  • Glow sticks*
  • Black sharpie or marker pen
  • How To Make Them:

    Clean those empty milk cartons out and let them dry out completely.

    Use your marker pen to draw on a spooky face - you can make it as scary as you like!

    Activate your glow sticks by cracking them and pop a few in each milk carton.

    Now, switch off the lights and pop them in your window for a spooktacular Halloween display.
