My kids have been worried about monsters lately so we needed a way to make them silly and not scary. This easy Paper Plate Craft did the trick… now they always have a monster in their room and it’s no big deal. This craft is also perfect for a less-scary Halloween Craft for little kids.
You may also like our Silly Monster Puppets that we made out of a chiffon duster from the dollar store and check out more monster crafts by the Kids Craft Stars (KCS) at the bottom of this post. You can also follow the KCS on Pinterest and Instagram. Just in case you missed it, previous themes have been Ocean Crafts, Recycled CD Crafts, Children’s Book Themed Crafts and Tissue Paper Crafts.
Here is a funny book by Mo Willems called Leonardo, the Terrible Monster (affiliate link) and to help the kids even more with their monster fear, we have been watching Monsters Inc. and Monsters University… I am also trying to convince my daughter to dress up as Boo for Halloween so I can dress my husband up as Sully–I’m pretty sure the daddy-daughter duo would be adorable.

Have a great day!
Such a great paper plate monster craft. I really like that you have used 2 plates for each monster and given them a body :D. I have added your monster craft to our round-up, 12 Of The Best Monster Crafts. You can view it here if you like, https://www.diythought.com/12-of-the-best-monster-crafts/
This is really fun! I like how they are all a bit different, and the excess use of eyes makes me smile as that's totally what my son would do! I have pinned this! Found via #pintorials
They are amazing! So cute and great looking monsters! Thank you for sharing it with us #pintorials
These are great, such fun painted in bright colours too. #TuesdayTutorials
Monsters are my favorite – there's no right or wrong way to make them. Great open-ended idea!
