Halloween is such a fun time for kids. My children love giving their friends goodies just as much as they enjoy receiving them.
I was trying to think of something fun for my daughters to give their friends at school for Halloween this year. I really wanted something that my little learners would both be able to have some hands-on fun making.
This Make a Monster totally fit the bill and, even better, both kids loved it in their own way. Are you trying to find an easy gift for your students or even your child’s friends this Halloween? If so, this may very well be the perfect thing for you!
Make a Monster is a single page that contains labels for the gift. The front of the label says “Make a Monster” with a cute, little monster.
While the back has a little poem and is editable so that you can personalize it for your students or your child’s friends in his or her class.

- –google eyes
- –purple pipe cleaners
- –green pipe cleaners

Getting Make a Monster Ready
First, you will want to cut the pipe cleaners into strips. I cut them in about 2-3 inch strips and that seemed to work perfectly. Next, you will want to place all of the items inside the Ziploc baggie. Each bag got 2 mini play dohs, and a handful of beads, google eyes, and pipe cleaners. Make sure you seal the bags properly so everything does not fall out of the bags.
The labels are editable. Download KG The Fighter font and open the document in Adobe Acrobat. You will be able to type in the desired name under from on the back of the label card.
Print off the labels and cut and fold. You will then staple the label at the top of the plastic bag. This is what it should look like when you are finished.

How Make a Monster Works
First, let’s be honest. By the time you get all of these bags up to your school or your child’s school, they will not look so cute, BUT let me promise you this – the children will still LOVE this. My daughter had an absolute blast making her monster. She actually asks to get it out every single day. I love seeing what she creates. Each time it is something new.
