Tips for Parents for Making Monsters with your Toddlers
We love to do simple and easy toddler crafts and have a few top tips to share with you to make this easy craft go smoothly so you all can have fun this Halloween.
Craft where you can easily clean up.
Our youngest 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 tabletop and made the monsters there as you can see from the picture.
Use Precut Shapes for your Little Ones
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 scissors, you can imagine the difference that there is. Expect wonky cuts and random shapes that is all part of their skill development.
Add in a little learning
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.
Display the Halloween Crafts
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.
