A quick intro for 52 Crafts with Your Toddler… I was looking for a way to spend creative time with my 2 beautiful girls who are budding little artists. So, I figured if we set-up a weekly craft time why not use it as my blog inspiration. Pretty simple.
Now for this week’s craft: Monster Boxes. These were fun and pretty simple. All you need is:
- Tissue Boxes
- Construction Paper
- Paint and Paint Brush
- Egg Carton
First, I removed the plastic around the mouth of the tissue boxes. Then I armed my 3-year-old with a paint brush. We used acrylic paint from our local craft store. Nothing fancy. While the boxes dried, I cut the “eyes” out of an egg carton and painted them white. The “eyes” I actually left 2 still connected to each other but then I also cut extra single cups to use as stamps for decorating our monsters. The “teeth” were the construction paper. I just cut them out of 1-2″ strips.
Once everything was dry, I taped the teeth inside the box opening and the eyes on top, colored the pupils black and there you go. Monster Boxes! Easy, fast and my daughter had a blast. This project is a definite must!
