  1. 1

    Boil water in a tea kettle. Supervise younger children who might be helping with this activity.

  2. 2

    Cut 2 squares of soft, flexible plastic. Each should be about the size of a bottle cap. White plastic bread wrapper tabs work well and are just about the right size.

  3. 3

    Pour the boiled water into a coffee cup. Put 1 of the plastic squares on a spoon and dip it in the boiled water for about 20 seconds.

  4. 4

    Now take the softened plastic square out of the water and mould it into the shape of a fang. Hold the fang over one of your canine teeth and let it harden for about 2 minutes.

  5. 5

    Repeat the process for the second piece of plastic and your other canine tooth. You should now have 2 spooky and scary vampire fangs.
