Create a friendly “monster” to share on Valentine’s Day!
- To create a special gift to give on Valentine’s Day
- To practice creativity
Before You Start:
Gather materials needed: cardboard craft rolls, assorted pipe cleaners, assorted craft twist ties, ceramic or foam heart shapes, wiggly eyes, pom poms, red and pink paint, paint brushes and tacky glue.
Let’s Get Started!
Paint a craft roll in a Valentine’s Day color. Alternatively, you could cover the roll in construction paper or foil paper.
Glue two lengths of either craft twist ties or pipe cleaners in the center of the craft roll. These will be the monster’s legs.
Glue a heart shape to the end of each leg. You can use ceramic or foam heart shapes, or simply cut your own hearts out of construction paper. Paint, if desired.
Glue two wiggly eyes and a pom pom nose to the outside front of the monster.
Twist the ends of two pipe cleaners together to create an extra-long pipe cleaner. Wrap the extra-long pipe cleaner through the back side of the monster and create a heart-shaped antenna.
Display your monster, or give to someone special!
Stuff the monster with a small baggie of Valentine’s Day treats to give someone an extra-special delivery!
