Have fun together while the paint dries (about 30 minutes or so), play a game, decorate cookies, whatever!

When the paint is dry, poke holes in the toilet paper roll so that holes are across from each other on the roll.TP Monster 2Now stick the pipe cleaner through a hole on one side of the toilet paper roll then through the other hole directly across from it on the other side.

Do as many pipe cleaners as there are holes to make the ‘arms’. 

Let the kids twist the arms to make monster limbs.TP Monster 3If the child is able, let them put the glue dots on the eyes and stick to monster as desired. If needed, put on the glue dots and then give to little one to attach.TP Monster 4They can make a family or village of monsters!TP Monster 5Copyright Carrie Groneman, A Mother’s Shadow, 2013
