Itty Bitty Monster

Itty Bitty is a monster with a name that makes you think he's small but he'd actually really BIG! He may seem scary, but he's actually very tender hearted and shy. Itty Bitty Monster reminds us that looks can be deceiving and we should get to know others on the inside before making a judgement. Let's make Itty Bitty Monsters together!

-Flat piece of cardboard



-Googly Eyes 

-Low temp hot glue gun 

(Ask for help from a grown up!)



-Paper Straws or Wooden sticks for legs



Step 1: Tie a long piece of yarn around your flat piece of cardboard.

Step 2: Wrap the yarn around the cardboard until you don’t have anymore.

Step 3 Wrap additional yarn colors around the same piece of cardboard.

Step 4: Use one piece of yarn to wrap and around all of your yarn pieces by pulling it through the opposite way and making a knot.

Step 5: Cut through all of the yarn on the opposite side of your knot you made.


Step 6: Take two smaller pieces of cardboard and hot glue two sticks onto them and then glue the other side of the sticks into your monster body, (if you don’t have hot glue you can make slits in the cardboard pieces and insert the sticks into them.)

Step 7: Add googly eyes or any other materials onto your monster.
