I wish we had thought of this craft earlier because we have all loved playing together with our Silly Monster Puppets. Each of my family members (toddler to adult) has had a turn putting words, stories, and life into our puppets with some great imaginary play. I especially love hearing my Hubs entertain my kiddos; aren’t daddies the best at being silly!?! We have definitely gotten our money out of these puppets because they are created with things I found in the dollar store. Awesome!!! Here is how you do it:
|Pin me please! 🙂|
Supplies: (all purchased from the Dollar Tree)
Foam sheets (optional)
Glue gun & glue sticks (I already had this)
1. Safety pin 3 safety pins to the back of the duster
|We used safety pins so Ms. Tiger could decorate it on her own instead
of me hot gluing things on while she watched
|Check out the concentration, and some great hand-eye coordination.|
|The back of our monster is stuffed full. (We removed the foam popsicle
sticks in the final project because they were not necessary)
|Optional: Use a pen or pencil to curl the pipe cleaners|
|“Hi silly monster, are you my friend?….Ahhh don’t eat me…”
Oh the stories she comes up with, what a little imagination…
she keeps me laughing for sure :).
Have a great day!
This is such a cute and simple idea to make monster puppets. I love this! Thanks for linking up at Mom's Library last week. I am featuring this cute monster craft at Pounds4Pennies this week. Stop by to link up this week. I would love to see you there.
Hi Amy, thanks for visiting! I am so glad you love our Monster Puppets. I was so excited when we were creating these because they came together so easily. Thank you very much for featuring our Monster Puppets on Pounds4Pennies, I am a follower and am thrilled to be included with all the other great ideas you share!
absolutely love these!!! x
Thanks so much Nina!
These are great! A great opportunity to use up all sorts of leftovers from other projects. Thanks for sharing.
Thanks for visiting, I'm glad you like them!
These are very, very cute! You'd never guess they were so inexpensive to make. I think kids would be delighted with the bright colors and all the fun of making their puppets act out original stories. Very clever!
Thank you! I'm so glad you took the time to think about our silly monsters. I totally agree with you and have seen first hand all that you said with my kids.
