Monsters don't have to be scary - they can be funny, silly creatures! Paper crafts are some of our daughter's favorites and she had a blast making all these funny monsters for Halloween. She loved that some of them only had one eye or wiggly arms. We also worked in talking about the shape we were using as the monster's body - so these shape crafts for preschoolers are not just fun - they're also educational! We included simple shapes (circle, square, triangle) for the younger young crafters and harder shapes (oval, rectangle, octagon) for the slightly older kids.
