It’s time for another of our Kids Craft Stars challenges, and this month we are sharing monster crafts for kids. Monsters are fun all year round, but with Halloween around the corner it’s the perfect time to get busy making some monsters.
We decided to make some easy and cute bubble wrap monsters for our craft.
Bubble wrap – if you have a mix of sizes and colours, then that’s even better
Felt tip pens or marker pens
How to make your bubble wrap monsters
Draw a monster shape on the paper, adding any details like arms, legs, horns or any extra bits sticking out of the monster.
Cut your bubble wrap to size and stick down to add a bumpy bubbly texture to the monsters skin.
Add googly eyes and extra details on top, like a tongue or other facial features
We did the above monster with green bubble wrap. The colour doesn’t show up as brightly in the picture, but it’s like a sea green.
If you have clear bubble wrap, try colouring and decorating the monster on your paper before adding the bubble wrap texture.
For this monster we left his legs bare and made the main part of his body bumpy and bubbly.
This is a super easy craft, and mess free too. You can make a whole collection of bubble wrap monsters – see how many different designs your kids can think up!
