Last week’s monster game was sort of a hit, so I revisited the monster theme for this week’s post. Besides, I gotta get some mileage out of those cute monsters I made 😉
I used the same monster bases as the game, but added several new templates for various features. These little monsters are easy to put together and only take tracing, cutting, and gluing skills, making them easy enough for most kids. I love the way that you can combine all the different features in so many ways, so no monster looks exactly like any other.
I made these monsters magnets, but you could easily add two slits and turn them into pencil toppers.

Monster Magnets, Step-by-Step
Start by printing out the templates. Cut out the body, then trace it on fun foam and cut out.
Do the same for any of the features you want to use. Feel free to use as many or as few as you would like!
Glue the features to the body. I use small sized wiggle eyes for the eyes.
Allow your monsters to dry. Once they’re dry, either hot glue a magnet to the back, or use a strip of magnetic tape to turn them into fridge-frequenting Monster Magnets!
