Let your kids get creative with empty egg cartons, paint and googly eyes to make some crazy fun (not scary!) monsters.



Time: 20 minutes
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials



Scissors
Empty egg carton
Paint
Paintbrush
Googly eyes
PVA Glue
Pipe-cleaners
Other decorations if required (sparkles, stickers etc)

Method
Cut each egg cup with scissors and paint in colour of preference, leave to dry.
Punch two holes (or one) in the top of each egg cup with scissors (this part is not for younger children to do) which will be for the monsters antenna.



Choose appropriate colour pipe-cleaner for antenna and thread through, bending underneath egg cup to stay in place.



Stick googly eyes in place with PVA glue, and any other decoration if required.

And you have yourself a monster.
