For this week’s Book Club playdate we have been reading all about Leonardo, the Terrible Monster, by Mo Willems.

This adorable story is about a monster who wasn’t very scary. He tries various things to be scary, but in the end he gives up and becomes a good friend instead of a scary monster!

We decided to make our own monsters and other than involving large amounts of googly eyes, I wasn’t sure what surface to use – until I came across some leftover paint chips (or paint swatches, if you prefer)! Here’s how we made them:

*If you don’t have these then any paper or card cut into small shapes to form the nose/mouth/teeth would work well!

We decided to cut the paint chips into different shapes to form the monster bodies. Don’t discard the off-cuts as they formed legs and arms later!

Then we applied glue to attach the googly eyes. Paint Chip Monsters - a fun and easy craft for kids!

Next we added some stickers and the other body parts.
