First you will need to paint your balls. This can be a little messy but fun! Hint: Let them dry resting on a few pins pushed into a scrap of cardboard or on the empty spaces on an upside down egg carton.
Once your painted ping pong balls are dry you can add the eyes! Use glue to attach as many (or as few) as you want!
Note: If you use hot glue an adult will have to help but they will be ready to play almost instantly!
Next, pieces of pipe cleaners can be bent and glued on to create arms, legs, and hair.
Hint: You will need at least three legs in order for your monsters to stand up.
After the glue is dry you’re ready to play!
I hope you and your kids have as much fun as we did with this simple monster craft. Create and play with your very own monster mash!
