Above, I added some eye peeper rings and vampire teeth that I picked up at the Halloween shop at Target.  The hinged vampire teeth always wanted to open up, which destroyed our playdough designs.  To solve this problem, I cut the teeth in half at the hinge.

Monster Themed Shape Activities

The next idea is to make monster creations from shapes. I found a great book of eye stickers at my local craft store and I have also seen similar ones at Oriental Trading. Cut out some shapes from brightly colored construction paper.  Then, kids can glue them down, add sticker eyes, and then they can complete their monsters creations with crayons.

Monster Fine Motor Activities

This fine motor activity was inspired by a monster that I saw on Pleasantest Thing.  Kids can create a monster by punching holes into a section of a paper towel tube.  Then they add pipe cleaners and binder coils through the holes.  The monster is completed with some silly sticker eyes.

Are you looking for a fun and easy monster movement activity?  It’s super simple to make goofy monster puppets with peeper rings.

First, tie pieces of metallic mesh tube ribbon and pipe cleaners to a hair tie.  Place the hair tie over a child’s fingers to make crazy hair.  Add an eye peeper ring…. and  …… tada ….an instant monster puppet.

Use the monster puppets while dancing and singing.  The perfect music is Laurie Berkner’s Monster Boogie.

Here is a silly hands-on way to help kids learn to recognize letters.  Draw a letter M on a piece of paper or use ABC Dot  Letters.  Kids can add “monster eyes” to the dots or along the shape of the letter as they practice the “m” sound, work on letter formation, letter recognition, and even fine motor skills.
