Cardboard Box Monsters – Halloween Crafts for Kids

Monster Madness has taken over Our Little House in the Country. These cardboard box monsters were so much fun to make!

Monster Madness - Cardboard Box Monsters - Halloween Craft for Kids - Our Little House in the Country A favourite book of ours at the moment is Scaredy Boo by Claire Freedman & Russell Julian.  Doodles (5) has been very busy drawing his own monsters based on the little monsters in this book so we decided to use his drawings and the book as inspiration for this activity!

What we did:

  1. Cover the boxes in wrapping paper
  2. Add googly eyes
  3. Cut teeth and fangs out from white paper and glue on
  4. Have lots of fun decorating your monster in whatever way you choose – we added hair, noses, glitter etc.
  5. Be as creative as you like and play with the monsters!  I got up yesterday to find one of ours had a mouth full of Peppa Pig character figures!!!!!

Be creative and have fun!
