Construction Paper Monster Craft
Having a handy invitation to play ready for one or more kids can be a lifesaver. These activities are perfect for when you need to cook dinner, fill up time in the afternoon, or host a playdate!
Our ice cream shop is always fun to pull out in the summer and these construction paper monster puppets are an excellent fall craft that encourages cutting skills and independent play!
We took the same idea and made a fun Halloween craft that the kids will LOVE!

Supplies for monster puppets:

- Fun Scissors.

- Craft Sticks.
- A Glue Stick.
- Large Hole Punch.
Setting up your invitation to play.
Whether you are creating these monster puppets for one kid, or a table full of little ones, a little prep can go a long way.
Start by cutting your colored construction paper smaller squares and rectangles for the bodies.
Use your large hole punch to create black circles and then cut them in half for the mouths.
Place a few white strips to cut into teeth. Then add your scissors, googly eyes, and craft sticks to the tray.
Making your Paper Monsters:
I created a couple to show the kids how to assemble them. You can see how to create them here in this quick video.
They can cut out any shape they want. The scissors will give the monsters a fun furry look.
Glue on one, two, or ten eyes! Also, add on a mouth.
Flip over and attach as many arms and legs as you like. Then glue on a craft stick.
Don’t forget those teeth…
The more the merrier! These guys are seriously cute and are sure to spark some silly play!
Don’t forget to pin it!
