MONSTERSAURUS by Claire Freedman and Ben Cort Project

We read the book,  "MONSTERSAURUS" for our Book Break this afternoon.  The boys LOVED this goofy story about a boy named Monty who creates three different monsters by doing the experiments in a zany science book.  We had fun with the KAPOW, POOF, and WHOOSH resulting in these silly monsters.  After reading the story, we made our own!

This is what we did:

  1. We used foam cut-outs purchased from Target.  I got a huge pack for $5.00.
  2. The boys glued googly eyes, feathers, foam teeth, horns and legs to their creatures.
  3. The put dots on the monsters with our Dot Art markers.
  4. For glue we used tacky glue.  It dries quickly and doesn't drip.  I pour a little bit of glue into a mini cupcake liner for each kiddo.  They apply the glue with Q-tips.
We worked on this project for about 20 minutes.  The boys had fun and they ROARED a lot while making them.
