The kids love the characters from Five Nights at Freddy’s. Even though they know it is supposed to be scary and they don’t play the game, they are still drawn to the characters. It is also extremely popular with the boys in Boy Child’s class. Making a week based on FNAF was not easy! Of course there is pizza and cupcakes. Those are easy. The rest required some creativity. The checkerboard floor and walls in the pizzeria fascinate Boy Child, so I went with that for a couple of the days.

1) Design a pizza slice
All I had to do for this one is draw a triangle on a piece of paper, then hand them the crayons, and let them go. Easy enough! They both went with pepperoni pizza.
2) Design a cupcake
I could have drawn a cupcake, however, I found this activity page and went with that instead. It has more detail than I would have done. I like that they went with the pink frosting like the cupcake in FNAF.
3) Checkerboard mosaic
I cut out 1 inch squares from black and white cardstock then had the kids glue them to a 12×12 sheet of cardstock. It is big enough to host a game of chess – or to have the FNAF toys walk around on!
4) Checkerboard tape resist painting
I used masking tape to create a checkerboard for this one. Then I had the kids pick out their favorite color of watercolor paint and cover the whole paper.
Once it was dry, I peeled off the tape and we had a magenta and white checkerboard. The loved to see how you could paint the whole page and the tape prevented the color from getting through.
5) Five Nights at Freddy’s building blocks
These kids have done a fantastic job keeping up with all of the activities I have made for them so far this summer. I felt like they deserved a little reward. I bought these little building sets that were recently released in stores. We have some of the ones from last year based on the first game. These are based on the Sister Location game and feature white variations of some of the same characters. They play with characters regularly so I knew they would really like these.
Teddy grahams – These are in honor of Freddy Fazbear of course.
Carl the Cupcake – I made some cupcakes and decorated them with pink icing. Then I used a little uncolored icing for the eyes. Then I used a little black food coloring on a toothpick to do the centers of the eyes. Good enough to make the kids happy. They knew what it was immediately!
Checkerboard peanut butter crackers – Anything checkerboard works for my kids as part of FNAF.
Checkerboard cheese and pepperoni – another variation on the checkerboard theme.
Pizza at a restaurant – the finale for this week!
