The kids will be out of school soon and fun summer-filled days are approaching. I am always looking for ways to keep my children busy by learning and being creative during the summer. Our favorite activities are hands on crafts that we can make together and anytime we can add googley eyes to a project, it’s a win :)These Monster Munch Treat Pockets are so much fun to make and uses supplies you most likely already have in your own home!
- Paper Plate, I used Chinet® Classic White™ square dinner plate and Chinet® Classic White™ square dessert plate
- Paint Brush
- Googley Eyes
- Scissors or Exacto Knife
- Hot glue gun
We used the Chinet® Classic White™ plates for both the monster munch treat pocket and also as a tray to hold the paint. I love the durability and strength of the Chinet® brand. The paper plates can withstand being painted on without getting soft and limp. When my kids were all done we just tossed the paper plates away. Clean up was a breeze and that is a must when crafting with kids!
Have your children paint the back side of their paper plates. You don’t want to paint the inside of the paper plates as we will be putting food on it.
Once both paper plates have been painted and decorated, PARENTS: Draw the shape of a mouth on one of the paper plates and using scissors or exact knife cut out the mouth shape.
PARENTS: Squeeze a bead of hot glue around the edge of the paper plates and glue them together. The inside of your two plates with be a hollow space that is perfect for pouring some fun snacks into.
If you haven’t already, now is the time to add your googley eyes. Adding the eyes is always my kids favorite part, it adds an instant personality to their craft and kids love to be silly.
This would be such a fun craft to make for a kid’s party. Your kid’s friends will love running around with their own snack pocket and can easily be tossed away after the party, which means less dishes for you to wash 🙂 You could also set this up as a kid’s craft activity for them to do with their friends. The kids will have a blast personalizing their own monsters.
