Arts & Crafts Fun – Create a Monster For Halloween

Create a Monster For Halloween

Creating a Monster is a great way of extending the learning about Halloween and using alternative material to create artwork. It will help to develop hand-eye coordination and concentration.

What you will need:

  • Egg Cartons or polystyrene balls
  • Paint and paint brushes
  • Felt paper (green, orange, purple, white and black)
  • Paint (another option to paint the boxes)
  • Cereal / tea / tissue boxes to make body of the monster
  • Glue
  • Masking tape
  • Black Marker


  • Using an egg box cut out two hallows to create the eyes.
  • Another option is to use the polystyrene balls.
  • Using a black marker draw the eye on the front.
  • Using a tea box (we used tissue boxes) tape it closed with masking tape and cut an oval shape out of the middle for the monster’s mouth.
  • We used the felt paper to wrap them in 3 different colors, another option would be to paint the boxes with your favorite color.
  • Cut out sets of sharp teeth from felt paper and attach inside the mouth with tape.
  • Finally glue the eye to the top of the box.

Have fun with this activity and we recommend adult supervision always.
