First you need to paint your balls. This can be a bit messy but fun! Tip: Allow them to dry by resting them on a couple of pins stuck in a piece of cardboard or on the empty spots on an upside down egg carton.
Once your painted ping pong balls are dry, you can add the eyes! Use glue to attach as many (or as few) as you like!
Note: Using hot glue will require an adult to help, but it’s ready to play almost immediately!
Next, pieces of pipe cleaners can be bent and glued on to create arms, legs, and hair.
Note: You need at least three legs for your monsters to stand up.
After the glue is dry, you can play!
I hope you and your kids have as much fun as we do with this easy monster craft. Create and play with your own monster mash!
