In this article, you can quickly see how to prepare a feed the monster activity for toddlers. I very much like it because it’s quick to make and kids can spend a lot of time with it or make their own. Additionally, it’s an excellent way to put old paper bags and boxes to good use.
What do You Need:
- Cardboard box or paper bag
- Colored paper (optional)
- Glue (optional)
- Permanent markers
Time to Prepare:
Around 10 minutes
What Steps to Take?
First, take a cardboard box or paper bag. If the package doesn’t look that good, glue colored paper on it as I did. You can, of course, also draw directly on them.
Now draw a simple monster or a happy face on it. I preferred the latter option in this case:)
Make the mouth part as bis as you like. We have a one-year-old at home who loves to hide stuff at the moment of writing. So I didn’t want to make the opening too big. This said if you plan to arrange pom-pom drawing contests with your toddler, make the mouth a little bigger.
Use the tape to adjust the shape of the box if needed.
TIP: Let your little one make his own monster. While it may not look that great for you, he or she will have a ton of fun.
To Sum Up
This is an effortless activity to prepare, so it’s perfect for busy moms and dads. In my experience, toddlers of different ages find it exciting, and you don’t have to keep an eye on them. One of the most important benefits for me is giving another life to old boxes and bags that would otherwise just end up in a garbage pin.
