I think my oldest, Will, might turn out to my crafty buddy. Last year he saw a version of these "monsters" in a craft book for kids and became super passionate about making them. He wrote out a list of at least 15 people he wanted to give them to as Christmas presents. I think we ended up finishing about 5, but i loved his enthusiasm and i loved that he could be involved in the whole process.
Here's one he made for his dad for father's day
For Ben's birthday, Will set out to make one for his little buddy. Here's how your little kiddo can make one too!
**However, hot glueing (inside out) works GREAT too and is faster/easier in some ways.
6) Then glue or sew the bottom shut.
8) If the recipient doesn't act interested, shove it in their face while making obnoxious monster noises! :)
