Little monsters made from clothes pins

This is such a super easy and fun project just using pegs, googly eyes and a few other bits and bobs from the craft cupboard and recycling bin. You don't have to use all the items I have used, just put together a bunch of interesting materials and some glue and let the kids create their own little monsters!


  • Wooden pegs
  • Googly eyes
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Wooden beads or blocks
  • Pom poms
  • Gum nuts or seed pods
  • Felt or foam shapes
  • Wooden match sticks
  • PVA glue or hot glue gun
  • Black marker pen
  • Items from the recycling bin like bottle tops or bread bag fastners


Just set out your materials and start creating, as soon as you stick on the googly eyes the peg monsters come alive!
