  • Egg Cartons
  • Paint and paint brushes
  • Cereal / tea boxes to make body of the monster
  • White card
  • Glue
  • Masking tape
  • Black Marker

Method:

  • Using an egg box cut out two hallows to create the eyes as shown in the photo.
  • Using a black marker draw the eye on the front.
  • Using a tea box tape it closed with masking tape and cut an oval shape out of the middle for the monsters mouth.
  • Paint the box with your favoutite color.
  • Cut out two sets of sharp teeth and attach inside the mouth with tape.
