Are you looking for a new playdate activity to keep some little monsters entertained? Have fun making these silly (not scary!) felt monsters.
It was lovely watching the two of them exploring the different materials on their trays. They were very enthusiastic with the gluing on their felt shapes. They then both had very definite ideas on how they wanted to decorate their monsters as well, which is great considering both are both only 2 years old!
When Little Miss B’s older brothers returned home from school later on that day and saw what their little sister had been upto in their absence, they ofcourse wanted to make some monsters themselves. I had predicted this though and had re-loaded the trays with supplies for them to work from. My 6 year old son was really keen to cut out his own felt shapes for his monsters, so I set him off with my fabric scissors, whilst I helped my 4 year old start off his first creation.
Top Tip – when trying to secure craft materials such as buttons, pom-poms and pipe-cleaners to collages, we have found it’s more effective to use double sided sticky tape to attach them rather than glue.
Little Miss B had another go at the activity as well and she had great fun again. If anything she was happy to carry on a good bit longer working alongside her big brothers. She really does learn so much from watching and working on art and crafts projects with them.
Felt is a really versatile material to work with and it comes in so many different colours. You can use it for many different arts and crafts activities. We used it again in our 5 Little Ducks activity.

So much opportunity for creativity here – I love how you set everything out and let them take over!
It's really great to see what they come up with themselves during an activity such as this one.
Ah this looks fab! I can't wait for Luka to settle into the new school routine a little better- I have lots of plans for activities like this once he's ready! x
Hope he settles in for you soon. My second son has just started out and i m finding that a few quiet activities after school are a nice way to chill out and chat about his day.
What a fun activity and I love the double sided tape tip. I am featuring your cute post at the #LovetoLearnLinky party in a Not so Scary Halloween Roundup. Have a fun week!
