Egg Carton Monsters

Woo hoo the half term holidays have started!  That means lots of time for crafts and activities.  To start everything off we made some non-scary egg carton monsters.  Well they were only meant to be egg carton monsters, but EC decided very quickly that they would make wonderful containers for their trick or treating sweets!

Make sure you follow my Halloween board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • An egg carton
  • Black Paint
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Anything to decorate
  • Chalk*

* we used liquid chalk pens but ordinary chalk would work just as well.

First we painted the egg cartons black and left them to dry.

Then we decorated our egg carton monsters with the chalk pens.  YC decided she wanted to fill the inside with fern leaves to cushion her sweets and then she stuck the stems to the top of her monster, which made it look like it had horns.

Finally we added arms out of the pipe cleaners and stapled them into place.

Again this was such a great craft to do, not just because it was fun, but also because it was so interesting to hear them discuss what their monster’s powers were.  EC covered his one in dots and told me that his egg carton monster gave people chicken pox if they didn’t give him any sweets!  Whereas YC was more concerned with making sure she used every colour pen available to decorate hers.
