Super cool and fun monster treat bags!

What you will need
  • Brown paper bags
  • Construction paper
  • Pipe cleaners
  • Markers
  • Scissors
  • Pencil n eraser
  • Wiggly eyes(optional)
  • Glue

Measure the side of bag
Cut colorful construction paper to cover one side of the bag. Glue n stick. Draw, cut eyes n teeth from leftover scraps of construction paper. Monsters are fun and  have no set expressions and number of eyes. Let your creativity soar!

I did a project like this for Halloween treat bags with kindergartners last year. They had loads of fun! If you are doing this project with a big group of small children, its HIGHLY recommended that you cut scraps for the facial expressions before hand and let kids choose. They can decorate using crayons, markers, wiggly eyes and other crafting supplies available. They loved it!

This project is done by book fair volunteers:) Thank You!
