Boo! It’s that spine-tingling, pumpkin-spiced time of year again, and we’ve got a monstrously fun activity for your little ones – a complete the monsters worksheet!
This cut and paste activity is easy to prepare (just print off and grab some scissors and glue) and can help your children develop those important fine motor and problem solving skills.
Although puzzles like this may seem simple to us, there’s actually a lot of skills that are needed to solve a puzzle like this.
Firstly, they’ll have to have decent cutting skills to be able to cut the pieces out neatly enough that they line up when completing the pictures (you may need to help them with this though if they find it tricky at first).
Once the pieces are cut out neatly, they’ll have to work out which halves go with which to make the picture – and fine motor skills when lining them up.
I’ve made a color and a black and white version in the pack.

What Skills Can Your Children Learn And Practice?
When using this monster puzzle worksheet, your children will have the chance to practice and develop skills such as:
- Fine motor skills – they will have to use a good pincer grip to pick up the halves and place them in the right place
- Hand-eye coordination – to ensure they can move and line them up neatly
- Cutting and sticking – they’ll need good cutting and sticking skills to carefully cut out the halves
- Pencil skills – if you use the black and white version, your children can practice and develop pencil control through coloring
