Kids Crafts: Monster Puppets

Well.. we only used the “cup” of the egg carton and I couldn’t resist keeping the “long pointy bits”.. I knew they would make perfect egg carton Monster finger puppets! So, when we had a play date a couple of weeks later, the kids got crafty. Again inspired by the pretty glittery glitter from Zing Zing Tree, as well as her really cool chenille  ribbon, the kids got crafty.

The process was very simple: paint – dry – stick – play!

Our motley crew of monster puppets. Just add googly eyes, glitter and funky chenille  ribbon (super tactile and the kids ADORE it, we receivd some as a present)!

The green finger puppet is a little like a dinosaur, don’t you think?

I love their “hats and skirts”! I think the kids did a great job with their Monster Finger Puppets! Yay for egg carton crafts!
