What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?

When using this build a cute monster template, your children will have the chance to practice and develop some skills such as:

  • Cutting Skills – if you feel they’re ready, you can let them have a go at cutting out the pieces all by themselves – they’ll need to be careful and have good scissor control if they want to cut out the pieces neatly
  • Fine Motor Skills – when they’re sticking and picking up and moving the parts and placing them where they need to go
  • Body Knowledge – great for the little ones to think about how the different parts of the monster’s body fit together
  • Pencil Control – if you print off the black and white version they can practice their pencil control and develop hand strength through coloring.

This simple monster craft will also give them a chance to practice their concentration and perseverance skills as they may find it tricky to place the pieces exactly where they want them to go.

 

How To Prepare This Build a Cute Monster Template

 

First you’re going to want to download the monster templates by clicking on the download box at the bottom of the page – I’ve made a color and a black and white version!

Other materials you’ll need:

 

  • Safety scissors
  • Card Stock or Craft Paper
  • Some Good Glue
  • Some coloring pencils or pens

Once you’ve downloaded the templates, you’ll need to print them off onto paper or card.

Then, you can cut them out. Or if you’d like your children to get some cutting practice, you can let them have a go.

Then you can stick all the pieces together to build your monster.

It can be really nice to let you’re kids have a bit of free rein here and see if they can work it out – kind of like a puzzle.

If they’re struggling, the order I’d do it in is:

  1. Stick the wings to the back of the body
  2. Stick the horns on the head
  3. Stick the head on the body
  4. Stick the arms on the body
  5. Stick the feet on the body

(I expect you could have worked that out but I do like to be thorough…)

The finished one should look something like this:

If you want to you could always laminate the pieces before sticking them together and use them as a puzzle. That way the different parts would be kept nice and they can use them again and again.

I’ve also created even more cute characters which I will be releasing in the coming weeks so they could use them together in a mix and match game as well (if you don’t want to miss them you can turn on notifications by clicking on the bell in the bottom right corner).

I’d love to see what they create!
