  • White paper plates
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Washable paint
  • Paint brushes
  • Googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Clear glue


1. Cut out the center of the paper plate and put it to the side.

2. Paint your monster and let it dry.

3. Cut out teeth or fangs from the excess paper plate.

4. Once the plate is dry, glue on all accessories. We recommend any combination of teeth or fangs, glasses, spots or scales, or eyebrows.

Pro tip: If using pipe cleaners, hold in place firmly so that the glue has time to dry.
