When I was growing up, Monsters, Inc. was one of my favorite movies of all time. Who can resist the hilarious Mike, lovable Sully, and oh-so-adorable Boo? Nobody, that’s for sure! My sisters and I bonded together, a rare feat I assure you, over our mutual hatred of Randall and his unjust ways. That movie will always define a part of my childhood, and it made monsters a lot less scary than I thought they were. Monsters don’t have to be scary; they can be big, friendly, and fun. In honor of the release of the new movie, Monsters University, try making some monster crafts for kids. If you love monsters as much as I do, then you will have a blast, whether you are making a recycled craft or something good to eat.
Turn an apple into a delicious monster treat, construct your own monster glove, or even make a monster from something as simple as an egg carton. Here are some great monster crafts for kids from AllFreeKidsCrafts.com for your movie-viewing pleasure.
The first thing you need while watching the movie is something to munch on. You don’t want your tummy to be rumbling so loud that you can’t hear anything Sully and Mike are saying. If you’re in the mood for a sweet treat, then these Monster Munch Brownies are the perfect edible craft for you. Using icing, cereal, and chocolate chips, decorate some delicious brownies to look just like your favorite monster.
