Crafty Friday: Monsters

I’m running a bit late today. I really had no plan for Crafty Friday today and I was scrambling to find something to do when Finn said, “Let’s make monsters!” So monsters it is.

Here’s what you need:

-a variety of colored paper, felt or material cut into various shapes and sizes

-buttons, pom poms, or googly eyes


-ribbon, yarn, fringe




I didn’t take the time to snap a lovely staged picture of the craft supplies. Instead, you’re going to get this:


This craft is pretty straightforward. Just have the kids start creating monsters out of the different supplies. They can use simple shapes like circles and squares for the bodies and start layering on hair and eyes, arms and legs until they make a monster they’re proud of. Easy peasy lemon squeezy.


Here’s Finn’s underwater monster lady and her monster cowboy husband, plus their weenie dog:


Here’s Audrie’s Dr. Seuss-like creation:


Have a great Labor Day weekend and I’ll be back real soon with some new paintings!
