Halloween is coming up this week! We’ve been reading lots of fall-themed books at our house. One of my kids’ absolute FAVORITE book is Do Not Build a Frankenstein! It is such a cute book! As we were reading it, I came up with an idea to do a game called Build a Frankenstein.
In this game, the goal is to build your Frankenstein before the other player. Players start with a green Frankenstein head. They spin and whatever the spinner lands on, the player adds to their green Frankenstein face.
Kids have fun adding the body parts to the face! It doesn’t have to look perfect. 🙂
2 spots on the spinner are not body parts. One is “Lose a Turn” and the other is “Take 1 Off”.
This game is a lot of fun! It’s simple for preschoolers and not scary for them!

*To make this game sturdy and last longer, I recommend printing the game on card stock paper and laminating it. I used this laminator.
*On the spinner printable, there is an arrow to cut out. Place a brad through the arrow and the spinner to make it spin. (You may notice my arrow looked different. I used a plastic arrow from another game we had.)
Hope you’ll try it out! Happy Halloween!! 🙂
What happens if they land on a body part they already have?

Sorry for the confusion. I would just spin again. Have fun playing!

We are doing the same thing. Thank you so very much.
I am working at a library, and we are celebrating the 200 year anniversary of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. I thought it would be fun to have young patrons play this game. When I clicked on the link that is supposed to let me download the game to print, it wouldn’t download for me to print it. Is there a trick to printing the game? I would appreciate your help.

I’m sorry for the trouble! It should download right away. Do you have your pop-ups blocked? Let me know if you can’t get it and I will email it to you.
