For things that are scary and go bump in the night.
And for MONSTERS!
Monsters on stick that is!
Making monsters on a stick is a great Halloween craft where kids can use their imagination.
Tell your grandkids to be creative. To be wild. Crazy or goofy or . . . monstrous!
Then watch their imagination soar.
(Click on the picture so that you can get a better look at my grandson’s four-eyed monster. He put a lot of detail on the arms. Or are they legs?)
This craft is super inexpensive on grandma’s pocketbook and super easy to prepare for. (That makes it a winner in my book!)
Here is what you’ll need:
- colorful paper
- glue stick
- craft stick
- wide strapping tape
- colored eyes or black and white eyes
Make copies of my free printable of the eyes. There’s a wide selection of one eye, two eyes, three and four eyes!
Then, give your grandkids colored paper and have them draw their creation. (I had both card stock paper and construction paper for them to choose from.)
They quickly got busy thinking, planning, and drawing. I was amazed at how intense my grandkids were!
They drew the outline of their monster with a pencil and then used markers to add details. (You could also have colored pencils or crayons, too.)
They selected the eyes then, snip, snip, snip. They cut them out and glued on the eyes.
When they were satisfied with their monster, they used wide strapping tape to attach their monster to a craft stick.
Voilá! Here’s a flock of monsters. And of the cutest grandkids ever!
(Xander, who is on the far right, wasn’t very thrilled at being asked to hold up a monster. He never did look at the camera and smile!)
