Easy Halloween Monster Crafts for Kids

1

I like to have more ideas of toddler crafts, because I know my lil’ guy is not always in the mood for painting, so until he is I have other options for us. These Easy Halloween Monster Crafts for Kids are suited for my 3-year-old and even for when he’s older too, because they never get too old for playing with their parents, and to tell you the truth even I enjoy making these crafts.

If your boys are anything like mine, they will love this monster theme, but don’t be surprised if your princes daughters want to join in and create cute pink glittery monsters that are great for tea parties. You can find some easy monster crafts ideas everyone will enjoy without a doubt. Halloween can be cute or scary, they choose how they want it to be. You can check out these suggestions and pick the ones your kids are in the mood of. And don’t forget to have fun!

Build a Monster

Print some cute or weird eyes, hands, feet and bodies, cut them out and let your toddler assemble the monster in any way he wants. He’ll just need some paper glue, and I can guarantee the fun.

No Mess Monster

Sounds just like Loch Ness Monster, only it will be less nessier. Each piece of paper you need to fold it in half so you know where the middle is. He can start painting just one half as closer to the middle as possible, up and down the line. Any colors he want, just dab the paint there to make half of the body. Now fold it and start squishing and rubbing the paint inside. It will become a colorful mess, but only on the paper. Unfold and start gluing eyes to it and draw feet and hands, even horns if he thinking it needs any. You can also glue some coloful thread to make some hair.

If you don’t mind the mess, this is a fun activity you should try with them. Have some watered down paint, a few colors each in it’s own container. A plastic spoon in each, a straw for each kid, permanent markers (so the colors don’t run when adding the paint) and a plastic foil where they work. Start by drawing some monsters with the markers, then add the paint one spoon at a time where the hair should be, then blow into it with the straws. The colors will mix and spread all over creating funny hair for the monsters.

Roll Monster

You know about my obsession with toilet paper rolls by now. They came in handy every time. So you take the cardboard rolls, he paints them any color he wants, let it dry a few minutes. Glue googly eyes, add hair out of colorful crinkle shredded paper or colorful yarn, draw mouths with markers or glue them out of construction paper, and there you have it.

Cut a Monster

Cut the body shape out of colored paper, and body parts, if your kid is older he can do it himself. Then glue them so it becomes a monster. The parts don’t need to be perfect or cut into exact shapes, anything goes.

Monster Head Band

Make them the head band by cutting 2 stripes of paper and glue them together on just one end. Let your kid decorate them with jewels, googly eyes, curling ribbon, straws, and chenille stems (or pipe cleaners). When he’s done glue the other parts together so it fits his head.

Monster Mask

Cut a Monster face shape out of color paper, cut eyes and mouth in it, let him glue more eyes, add features, with color paper, curling ribbon, and draw on the mask. Glue the mask to a Popsicle stick and chase each other around the house.

Sock Monster

You’ll need a sock, make sure it doesn’t have any holes in it, some rice, some googly eyes, some beans (for teeth), colored yarn, glue and a permanent marker. Let him fill the sock with rice. You can either cut it when you are done, not all the way to the heel, after you tie it up really tight, or leave it and fold it to make some kind of hat. He can glue, or sew (with a blunt needle), some colorful yarn to cover the part you tied, or under the hat. Next he’ll need to either glue the googly eyes, as many as he wants, or sew some buttons on it. Draw a big mouth and glue some beans in it. You’ll have your special Sock Monster to play with and have fun creating it.
