My kids have been playing with these toilet paper roll monsters for days. And they absolutely love that they were the ones who made them. It’s so fun that they are getting to the point where they want to be crafty and come up with their crafting ideas. These were ALL William. He asked if he could make monsters to chase Gracie with…does it make me a bad mom for going along with it?!
The kids painted their rolls what ever color they wanted, then once dry I poked holes for the arms. Some had just 2, some had even 6. To poke the holes I just used an exacto knife then poked the pipe cleaners thru and bent/twisted them to make them unique.
And of course we had to add googly eyes. Cause we’re obsessed with them!! I let them pick out how many, the size and tell them where they wanted them, but I put them in place with some hot glue.
The red one William drew a crazy mouth on. So not only did it have 3 eyes, it also had a mouth!
They are holding up really well surprisingly. They have been thrown, chased, and a few even stepped on but they are still all surviving!
