Looking for something to keep little hands busy? Try this adorable Build A Monster Printable craft Kit!
Creating things with my children is one of my favorite things to do. Whether it’s making this easy Slime Recipe, Ribbon Wands or learning How To Make Playdough; there’s always something fun to make.
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 I 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 at least the disaster isn’t on my kitchen table anymore!
One of our favorite projects so far is this Build A Monster craft project. I’ve provided horns, arms, legs, eyes, bodies, and mouths so all you need to provide is scissors, glue, maybe some extra paper, and as much imagination as you’d like. You’ll have a great time seeing how each monster turns out!
How To Make A Monster
- Build-A-Monster Printable Kit (download below)
- Tape or glue
- Laminator + laminating pages (optional)
- Print off our Build A Monster Printable Kit onto paper or card stock.
- Cut out.
- Laminate (optional). This would be a great option if you want to use these over and over.

This makes a great indoor project if you’re trying to beat the heat. These monsters would also be fun for your next birthday party! Print and cut out a bunch of monster parts and then let the party guests decorate their own gift bags.
So stinkin’ cute!!

Thank you! My students were fascinated with the monsters! Greetings from Paraguay, South America
You’re welcome! So nice to “meet” you!
I want to use this for my class, but I can’t find the download link anywhere on this page. Can you please link it under this comment?
Sorry about that! If you go near the bottom of the page, there should be a form to enter your email address and name. Once you do, it should take you directly to the file to be able to download it.
We love these monster printables! We used them several months ago and just this week my 7-year-old was asking for them again, so we made them again. So cute, and lots of enjoyment for my little ones! Thank you for providing these and many other fun and useful/helpful things.
You’re so welcome! I’m so glad they enjoyed them so much…you made my day!
Such an adorable printable, thank you!
You’re so welcome!
I used this as an activity for my 2nd grade class and they all had so much fun. Thanks!
That’s awesome, thanks for sharing!
I couldn’t find another way to contact you, but I have tried several times to download the monster printable kit. I have typed in a few different emails to see if that was the problem, but I haven’t received the printable in my inbox. I would LOVE to use this, so I was just wondering if there was another way I could download them.
I am so glad I found this site. I was able to help my child finish his reading fair board in one night. I was easily able to download the monster kit, print, and assemble it together. He even put it so it did the “dab.” Thank you so much .
Haha! I love it! I am glad you were able to use these printables! 🙂
is there a black and white version?
Hey! Thanks for sharing your Monsters! I printed them for our Monsterparty yesterday. The Kids loved creating their own giveaway Bags!!
Fantastic and useful material! Thank you!
Can I use these in my preschool classroom?
Thank you so very much for the monster printable. My boys, ages 5 and 7, are having a blast decorating our walls with your cute monsters!
I can’t see another way to contact so I will ask here! I have a n electronic cutter and was wondering if it would be ok if I used it to cut out these images! I will be using them to send with my daughter to daycare for their Halloween party. I just thought I should ask first! I won’t share the file with anyone either, just use it this once, and I have been directing my crafty friends here (you do great work, you should consider designing svgs)
Hi Alison! I really appreciate you asking first. This is fine as long as it’s for personal use. Sounds like it is. Thanks for being respectful of my artwork!
And I’d love to design SVGs… I’ve done a few, but need to keep pushing myself to do more! Let me know if you ever have ideas of something you haven’t seen out there already and I’ll do it! 😉 joan @ bitsycreations.com to email.
This is so cute! My kids will love making these cute monsters! Thanks so much for sharing!
Thank you so much!
I can’t even tell you how much fun I have had with my 2.5 year old daughter making monsters for Halloween. I don’t remember how I found this, but I’m glad I did. Thanks for great printables and a cute idea for afternoon projects. I will be keeping an eye on this blog 🙂
I’m glad to hear you enjoyed this so much!
Thanks for letting me know, Nicole! 🙂
Super cute would love this
awesome Thank you my children have all their pieces picked out and can’t wait to make themselves a monster . Thank you for a fun free printable !
I sew for our children’s hospital and I’m going to make the monster pillow from fleece with a pocket in the back and make the faces from felt. Kids can sit in bed and make their own monster faces. Thank you! Kids will love it.
This sounds wonderful!! I would love to see pictures of your monster pillow!
Thank you!! I am going to print these smaller (two on an 8×10 page) then laminate them, cut hem out and put magnets on the back so we have a fun busy bag for the car!! I imagine this will keep the kids busy for awhile.
Great idea! That sounds perfect!
I love this collection. Would mind if we featured this collection in our Halloween blog post. We will be sure to give you credit and link back. Please let me know ASAP 🙂
Thanks for your comment! We’d love for you to feature this on your blog. And yes, please include a link to this post where your readers can then download directly from us. Thanks so much!
Thanks! My kid enjoyed these printables a lot!
I am making a travel book for when we drive halfway across country to Florida next year. These will be a perfect addition. I’ll print them off on card stock and then attach magnets to the back so the kids can build monsters on cookie sheets. Thanks!
These are soooo cute! I’m totally using them for my sons monster birthday party on monday!! Thanks!
I run a website for children who are non-verbal and use technology to talk (such as iPads). I was wondering if I might include this with a lesson plan to encourage the kids to learn to say simple sentences to make requests with their talkers. I will certainly give you credit and provide a link to your site. Please email me. 🙂 Thanks,Jane
Such a nice activity idea! Thank you for taking a time to put this printable together! Shared around! 😀
These are great for my 3 1/2 year old, thank you! Our first couple; I cut, he stuck. Now I’m going to cut, laminate and add velcro dots, so he and his 14 month old sister can re-use them over and over again.
Thank you so much!!! we will have a blast with this activity!
I can’t wait to use this activity! Thank u!
I just wanted to let you know that I made a set, and then ran with the idea and started a magnetic busy box to go along with them- we’re going to the airshow at the end of the month, and we know there will be a good few hours of wait wait wait going on, and the kids will love these monsters!
Wow, Amii! That is awesome!!!
So fun and SO cute!! Thanks for the printables, Joan!
Wow, thank you so much for sharing this FREE!?!?! I couldn’t believe it was free! That is so generous of you. It is our 2 weeks winter school holidays at the moment in New Zealand and cold and rainy outside, so this is PERFECT for my kids! Thanks again, Nicola
Nicola, I’m thrilled to offer it for free. I love to share where I can! So glad these printables are getting used! 🙂
What fun! It’s a rainy afternoon so my son and I did this today after church. We had a great time! The colors are great, it’s good scissors practice and with so many pieces, the combos are endless. We made the two bodies and then made several more faces on paper plates. Thanks so much for this!
This is great!
Thanks so much for posting. I can’t wait to print this off and use it on our road trip with my 5 year old. I plan to print it out on card stock or construction paper so it’s easier to craft with. I may even use something so the parts can move! How fun!
I would love to see something similar to this but with vehicle parts from Planes, cars, trucks etc..
Do you have a black and white version that kids can color? This will be expensive to print out.
Thanks! I love it 🙂
It’s so cute
This is AWESOME!!! You are great for sharing it with everyone. We will be having some fun with this at our house! THANK YOU!
My little grandkids would love this. I try to do lots of creative things with them.
The kiddos in my preschool class will LOVE this!! Thanks!
We really wanted a black and white version that we could color too! This is awesome thank you!
Jordan, a black & white version is a GREAT idea! I will work on that & can add it. It may take a little while, though. 😉
Super cute! I second the idea re: B/W outline version. Robots, cats, dogs, bunnies might be cute, too. Going to glue to magnetic sheets for ongoing fun. Will also be using in Spanish-language classroom during study of body parts!
Thank you so much, these are perfect for the book When a baby monster is born.
This is so adorable! Thanks so much for sharing! You are crazy talented, girl! 🙂
Thanks, Krystal! Such kind words. 😉
thank you so much, this is great!
Can’t wait to do the project with the grand kids! Thanks for sharing!
What a super cute craft!! I love it!! Thanks so much!!
Joan is amazing! Thank you for this cute craft that is keeping my girls entertained this afternoon.
this is adorable!! thanks!
