The Necessary Supplies
Arts and crafts projects can be fun and creative without requiring many expensive supplies. This idea requires several basic materials that are easy to come by. All that’s needed is an empty tissue box, a few googly eyes, white and colored acrylic paints, glue, paper, and whatever you’d like to use for decoration. To make your monster extra special and unique, use fuzzy pom-poms, glitter, colorful straws, paper cupcake liners, and whatever else comes to mind!
Have Fun Crafting
Paint the box white to cover the underlying design. When it’s dry, paint the box your preferred monster color, using a different color for the inside. Outline the mouth with a black marker to make it pop. Cut out and glue on a few paper teeth, attach the googly eyes, and have fun decorating and designing unique monsters!
New Purposes for an Old Tissue Box
Recycling can certainly be fun, especially when it turns into a fun-filled bonding experience with the kids. Once the monsters are crafted, they can be used in many different ways. For example, they can be used to store napkins or plastic utensils for children’s parties. Put some LED candles or wire lights in them and make a spooky night light.
Because each monster will have a unique look, and many kids are visual learners, the crafted monsters can be incorporated into their studies. Write nouns, verbs, and adverbs on little pieces of paper and have the kids divide and feed them to the right monster to make learning more fun!
