STEP 2 - Colour the shapes:

Now it is time to colour your shape monster template.  But first, ask the kids which piece from the template they want to use for their monster. In our printable template, we’ve included tons of different shapes to choose from!

Once they’ve chosen their favourite shapes, it’s time to take out the markers and color every piece!

If you want to add an extra-special detail to this fun monster craft, you can use a headshot of your child and make it part of the monster. Kids are going to have a blast!

STEP 3 - Cut out the shapes:

Once you have coloured your chosen shapes it is time to cut out all the pieces. Younger children may need a little help with this.

STEP 4 - Attach the shape pieces:

Now, we have to put our shape monster together. For this, simply glue all the pieces in any way the kids want. There are no rules or shapes to follow; these monsters are totally one-of-a-kind!

Using a marker, draw some details like the fingers, toes, or even some lips or smiles to your monsters to make them look friendlier.

Take out the google eyes and glue them onto their monster. But remember, no rules! Spice it up and add two, three, or even five eyes if you wish! After all, these monsters are all about creativity.
