Hi all! It’s Joan from BitsyCreations again. Summer is here and we’re up to our eyeballs in projects at my house! In fact, I decided to go for the “Best Mom Award” and moved a craft table into my home office for the summer. We’ve been cutting and pasting and creating to our hearts’ content. Sure it’s a disaster. But guess what! It’s not a disaster on my kitchen table anymore! Oh yes. I win!
One of our favorite projects so far is definitely the Build A Monster project I’m sharing with you today! I’ve provided horns, arms, legs, eyes, bodies, and mouths! You provide scissors, glue, maybe some extra paper, and as much imagination as you’d like!
The possibilities really are endless. One of my helpers decided to use the printable body, while my other decided to just use a shiny piece of cardstock. One used the printable arms and legs while another cut some out of paper. They even decided to make nametags for their monsters and then tried to make them 3-D. One monster bent at the knees and could sit. The other could almost stand on his own!
This makes a great indoor project. Practice your cutting skills and enjoy using your creativity! Or pin this and come back to it for your next birthday party! I did something similar for my son’s 5th birthday party. We printed and cut out a bunch of monster parts and let the party guests decorate their own gift bags. It was so much fun to see how each monster turned out!
Your free printable is an 8 page PDF. You can print all at once or choose to print more of what you need. Print more bodies or legs, for instance. Print as many times as you’d like, but please remember it is for personal use only. Do not resell, alter, or claim as your own.
Have a free printable you’d like to see? Let me know for next month! I’d love to make something you’d find helpful or fun. You can reply here or like BitsyCreations on Facebook and tell me there!
