The kids loved designing it and (after I cut the mouth and drew a few guide-lines) coloring it in with markers. They were very pleased with their scary monster!
You need a box with one blank side. Design the monster with your child. Will it be scary? beautiful? happy? grumpy? Cut out the mouth--make sure it is at least twice as big as the ball you intend to use. Let your child color in the rest of the monster.
Here's a few topics you can talk about during the design process:
- teeth and mouth hygiene
- hair brushing
I'd love to see pictures or hear about any Monster Toss you make! Feel free to post them on my PreschoolPowolPackets Facebook page, link up in the comments, or send me an email!
I may share at any of these parties!
