Craft a tissue box monster
Those large openings are screaming out to be fed - fingers! Toy cars! Little figurines! The kids will have fun feeding the the hungry beast of a tissue box monster, but they’ll have even more fun making it.
What you need:
- Tissue box
- Tissue paper or plain paper to cover the box
- Sticky tape
- White cardboard or paper
- Plastic googly eyes
- Decorations (including coloured paper spots, wool, egg cartons)
Step 1: Remove the plastic insert on the inside of the tissue box opening.
Step 2: Wrap the box in paper with the opening face down so the sticky tape areas are to the back.
Step 3: Using scissors, cut the hole through the paper.
Step 4: Cut plain white paper or cardboard into a jagged edge to create 'teeth'. Use a paintbrush to glue these to the inside of the opening.
Step 5: Press the “teeth” on the inside of the opening on the top and bottom.
Step 6: Have the kids decorate theior monster with coloured paper spots or stickers, wool for hair, paddle-pop stick arms, pipe-cleaner antennas and egg carton eyes - the more the monsterier!
