Tips for Monster Making with Toddlers

Craft where you can easily clean up. T wasn’t able to reach the table sitting on a chair when we made these so instead of strapping her into a high chair she sat on the table top and made the monsters there as you can see from the picture.

These monsters were made using the precut face shapes that I provided for the kids to use. Although the placement and gluing was all their own work. With older toddlers and preschoolers that are using the scissors, you can imagine the difference that there is. Expect wonky cuts and random shapes that is part of their skill development.

As you do simple crafts with toddlers talk about what they are making. Say you like particular colours, shapes, textures etc… as well as in the monster faces the placement of the face features this all helps with language development.

Toddlers also love to see the things that they make. We attached these to our window for Halloween so that we could see one of the crafts that we had created.
