Tips for Success

*To give little ones a variety and make the monsters look different cut out all sorts of shapes and sizes of pieces. Some ideas for pieces could be white and black circles for eyes, triangles of all different sizes and colors, rectangles for the bodies, smaller rectangles for the heads, antennae of different colors and shapes, small rectangular lines for stripes, black or red mouth pieces, and more.

*Allow little ones to choose the number of eyes, antennae, and other pieces they want. Let them glue them on where they desire. This will make the completed project more original and fun.

*Once monsters are finished allow them to stick their hands in the bag and use them as puppets for plays.

*When we create rectangles for the body we like to make them the same size as the side of the bag. Then we can glue them on and the monster can have a colored body. For the Monster’s head, we like to make the rounded rectangles slightly bigger than the bottom of the bag. This will allow for some overhang to glue pieces on as well as more room to fit additional eyes, and other pieces.
