monster clothespin puppets

We’re to the point in the seasonal transition where there has been enough warm days that our kids know what they’re missing outdoors and are none too happy when the weather turns cold again. It seems to alternate cold to warm every other day the last couple weeks, so we’ve had to be ready with exciting and fresh things to do inside. On today’s blustery agenda: Monster Clothespin Puppets!

Here’s what you’ll need:

Monster Supplies

Take your favorite bright color scrap paper and cut circles (we use this 1-Inch Circle Punch like crazy!)

Monster Clothespin Puppets

Then cut the circles in half, gluing each half to one prong of the clothespin creating the Pac-Man style mouth.

Then you can add hats, teeth, eyeballs and funky hair to create your monsters. Ours are definitely party monsters, we couldn’t help it! Then let them dry completely and you’ll be ready to play!
