Since I am tasked with overseeing the bed-time routine of our active little monsters, I'm always looking for new ways to make getting PJs on an exciting event. One evening on my way home from work, I stopped by my local craft store and picked up a bag of craft pom-poms, googly eyes, and some craft foam sheets. I made about twenty monsters and hid them through the house for the boys to find. They had such a great time spotting the little monsters that later when my five-year-old son was asked to bring his favorite toy to kindergarten for Show-and-Tell, he brought his favorite monster I had made. Add "Hide & Go Shriek" to your family's bed-time routine and watch your children scream with delight as they discover their favorite Monsters University pals, Mike and Sulley.Download Hide & Go Shriek Template
Print the Hide & Go Shriek template and cut out the desired size and style of monster you want to create.
For Mike: trace the cut-out feet template onto the light green craft foam and cut out the foam feet shape with scissors. Then use glue to affix the light green pom-pom to base of the feet. Glue one large googly eye on the face of the light green pom-pom. Trace the horns on beige cardstock and the mouth on black cardstock and glue them in place as seen in the picture.
For Sulley: Trace the eyebrows and nose on dark teal cardstock, the mouth on black cardstock, and the horns on tan cardstock and glue them in place as seen in the picture. Place two medium-sized googly eyes just under the eyebrows and above the nose.
Use left over pom-poms, googly eyes, foam and paper to make your own monstrous creations!
