BOX MONSTER HEADS

Cardboard box monster mask heads children's craft activity

The inspiration for this activity came from the amazing LETS MAKE ART UK, they are truly masters of putting boxes (and paper bags) on their heads! I urge you to go check out their blog.

MATERIALS:

  • Head size cardboard boxes
  • Paint
  • Glue
  • Craft knife
  • Paper for collage
  • Any other bits and bobs that might make interesting additions to your monster box heads!

HOW TO:

First, I took the boxes apart, turned them inside out and glued them back together again, this gives you a blank canvas to work on. Next I cut a slot in the box at eye level using a craft knife so you can see out. Then we began painting our boxes.

We cut out and painted a selection of cardboard shapes to use for collage. We also cut out a selection of shapes from coloured paper. Once the paint had dried on our boxes we began to make our monster faces gluing the paper and cardboard shapes onto the boxes.
