Popsicle Stick Monsters (Halloween Arts and Crafts)

Great Halloween project for a variety of ages! 

 


Materials Needed:

 

Directions:

You can paint or color the popsicle sticks. If you decide to paint them, let them dry before gluing them together. Take a few of them and lay them out side by side till you get the desired size of the monster then glue a stick on the back diagonal.

Example

Cut out shapes from the construction paper for the hair, mouth, teeth, horns, or whatever features you’d like on your monster. 

Flip the sticks over so the diagonally stick is on the bottom. Glue on your features and googly eyes! 

 

Check out my daughter’s final product!

Materials used: sticks, markers, googly eyes, glue, and construction paper.
