Today's activity comes from Danett who blogs over at Art Lovin!

Another fun activity that I know my boys will love...in fact, I can totally see Moses taking this a step further and cutting them out, gluing them to popsicle sticks and making them into puppets!


This is another fun craft that both of my kids thoroughly enjoyed. 

Straw Monster Supplies:
plain paper
old ice cube tray
permanent black marker
googly eyes

1. Mix the paint with water in equal parts.

2. Put a spoonful on your paper and blow with straw.  
3. Turn your paper as you blow, so it spreads out on all sides.

4. Let paper dry completely.

5. Glue googly eyes on your monsters.

6. Draw your face on your monster with a black permanent marker. 

Ben's favorite monster.

Bro's favorite monster. 

Thanks Danett!  Be sure to go over and visit her at Art Lovin!
