Craft a tissue box monster

Craft a tissue box monster

Those large openings are screaming out to be fed – fingers! Toy cars! Little figurines! The kids will have fun feeding the the hungry beast of a tissue box monster, but they’ll have even more fun making it.

What you need:

  • Tissue box
  • Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Tissue paper or plain paper to cover the box
  • Sticky tape
  • White cardboard or paper
  • Plastic googly eyes
  • Scissors
  • Decorations (including coloured paper spots, wool, egg cartons)

Number of players:


Step 1: Remove the plastic insert on the inside of the tissue box opening.

Step 2: Wrap the box in paper with the opening face down so the sticky tape areas are to the back.

Step 3: Using scissors, cut the hole through the paper.

Step 4: Cut plain white paper or cardboard into a jagged edge to create 'teeth'. Use a paintbrush to glue these to the inside of the opening.

Step 5: Press the “teeth” on the inside of the opening on the top and bottom.

Step 6: Have the kids decorate theior monster with coloured paper spots or stickers, wool for hair, paddle-pop stick arms, pipe-cleaner antennas and egg carton eyes – the more the monsterier!
