Attention class room parents! Here’s a fun read aloud activity you can complete for your fall or Halloween class party! Grab the free PDF file or free SVG cut file of the The Bad Seed and pair it with The Good, The Bad and the Spooky Halloween book for some creative class time!

You may remember last Halloween when I was a virtual volunteer class parent for my 1st graders class where we completed this fun Spookley Pumpkin Halloween craft!
After the zoom crafting session the teacher displayed their adorable creations on the bulletin board outside the classroom.
This year, I’ve volunteered for my 4th graders class and volunteered to take on the craft portion of the fall party. Are you surprised? Her teachers recommended coming up with a craft around the Halloween book: The Good the Bad and the Spooky, which is the Halloween book in The Bad Seed series their class has been enjoying this fall.
Since I know being a class parent involves making multiples of certain items I’ve set you up with a few options to create this Bad Seed craft for a single child or a group.
GRAB THE SVG: Here’s a zip folder of the SVG cut file which contains both a single Bad Seed if you’re creating this for only one kid, and a file of the pieces grouped tightly if you’re making multiples. I am just not a fan of how Cricut Design Space lays out pieces when going to cut and I like to have a version where it’s making the most use of my cardstock or vinyl so I’ve laid this out for you on 8.5×11″ cardstock.
GRAB THE PDF: For those without a Cricut machine, I’ve also created a PDF instructional document with a template of shapes you can cut out to make this craft by hand!
The Bad Seed Read Aloud Craft:
- Cardstock (Grey, White, Black)
- Glue Stick
If you’re cutting this with a Cricut, I highly recommend using a brayer roller to help the cardstock attach to the mat and the spatula tool to help release the cardstock from the mat without bending it.
Since this particular version of The Bad Seed craft was based around the Halloween themed book, we will be encouraging the kids to dress their seed up with a costume of their choice using construction paper. I drafted up 2 versions, since her teachers are big Disney fans!
I will update this post after the party and hopefully show off some of the Halloween costumes the kids design for their seeds.
