Easy Monster Craft




This was such an easy craft we made for our "Monster Week." I'm talking easy with a capital E. 
And cute to boot! Who could ask for anything more?

Here's what you do:
  • We used a package of red shredded paper. You can buy these in the gift-wrap section of any store for around a dollar or less. I'm not sure what it's called exactly, but it's PERFECT for creating creative, creepy creatures like our lovely monster above. 
    • OR, if you have a paper shredder, you could also run a few sheets of colored paper through and use that! :)

  • So, just have your child put glue all over a piece of cardstock and plop handfuls of the shredded paper on top. 
  • Then top it off with a pair of eyes:  circles cut out of white and black paper.

It is great. And Easter basket grass is sometimes paper and comes in a multitude of colors now
