BLOCK HEAD MONSTERS
I love that you can pretty much put googly eyes on anything and it comes to life, and I love how this inspires children's creative imagination. We made these cute little BLOCK HEAD monsters just using a few simple craft supplies from our LOOSE PARTS CONSTRUCTION craft box and some glue. Since making them my little ones have spent hours playing with their creations, building cars and houses for them using LEGO and taking them on imaginary adventures. I find that this type of open-ended activity really engages my children's imagination and creativity.
- A selection of wooden blocks, craft sticks and pegs
- Googly eyes
- Coloured paper or card scraps
- Pom poms
- Pipe cleaners
- Coloured markers
- Glue (hot glue gun or PVA glue)
All the materials we used to build our BLOCK HEAD monsters are available in our LOOSE PARTS CONSTRUCTION craft box.
Gather your materials, with projects like this I like to set up an 'Invitation to create'. If you're not familiar with the phrase, it’s when you set out interesting art and craft materials which are so enticing, they 'invite' children to come over and create. Basically it means just setting the materials up nicely on a tray or table! Now let your little ones get creative, we built cute little monsters but you could try building animals or people.
