Pages 10-12 : Design your own Monster

Design and create your own monster using just a basic shape outline for inspiration. See how many different versions the kids can come up with. Which one is your favorite monster? 

On these pages we have provided the shape monster templates for hexagon, circle and blob monster but this is just the beginning. Cut out some basic shapes and try to make even more shape monsters – Can you make a triangle monster, or a star monster? Kids can get creative beyond crayons and pencils, to add some googly eyes, sequins and glitter, ribbon, pipe cleaners or whatever you can find in the craft cupboard. 

Make your own Halloween monster, friendly funny monster, or evil and terrifying monster – whichever you prefer. 

Here’s one way we used these templates, for a bubble wrap printed monster craft
