It's been awhile since I've had an entire day in the studio. So much to do and I am so excited to be doing it in my favorite place. Happy Friday everyone!!
Our children, age 4 and 5, just celebrated their 100 days of school and as part of the school celebration of the milestone, they were welcomed to make something that contained 100 items. Recently, my daughter has been fascinated with googly eyes and my son with Monsters...so I surprised them with this activity.
Draw your monster on your letter sized piece of cardboard.
If you aren't confident in your Monster drawing ability, feel free to use my Monster Template.
NOTE: Cardboard makes a great base for this. It is rigid and lets the kids actually play with these monsters afterwards .
Let me know if you try it...I'd love to see your results!
