we had a kids craft day last week and had a fun time making these
lil love monsters
they are always a hit with our kids (and us adults) it’s fun to see how each one turns out a little (or a lot) different from the others.
50z paper cups
piece of cardboard – 2 1/2″ x 4″
scissors or heart punch
– wrap your yard around the cardboard piece (long-ways) about 150-200 times
– on one side of the cardboard tie a knot around the center of yarn
– flip the cardboard over and cut through the center of the yarn. this is your main hair pom pom.
– take an upside down paper cup and hot glue your pom pom to the top
– make another pom pom by wrapping the yarn (short-ways) around the cardboard about 20-30 times
– this is your “toupee” pom pom. hot glue it on top of the other pom pom
now the fun part. decorating your monster.
– add your googly eyes
– make some pipe cleaner antennas and hot glue to the top of the head under some yarn hair
– punch or cut out some paper hearts and hot glue to the tops of the antennas
your adorable love monsters will be looking pretty.
we had a couple little boys that were willing to take a long enough break from the video games to create with us. as you could imagine they weren’t interested in anything cutesy. we didn’t let them know that even though their monsters turned out somewhat strange, they were still absolutely adorable. haha.
the girl monsters were not sure what to think about the boy monsters at first…
but in the end, decided that they could all be friends.
