build-your-own monster face

Just in case you missed my guest post over at Blissful and Domestic

Ok, so I made this for Halloween, but silly monster faces are great any time of year!

I printed out lots of different silly eyes, noses, mouths, ears and hair on photo paper so that they would be a little sturdier.

Then I did my own ghetto version of laminating. I took this clear sticky plastic (you use it to cover school books) and sandwiched my pieces between two layers, then cut them out. It stuck really well and worked similar to laminating. (Not absolutely necessary, but I thought it would help them last longer in the hands of my destructive 2 year old.)

I glued magnets to the back of each piece and bought a round metal pan to stick them on. You could use a cookie sheet, pie pan or just the refrigerator if you want.

Let your kiddo use their imagination to create tons of faces! This could be hung on the wall, taken in the car or played with on their lap. It’s great and super portable – just throw the pieces in a ziplock and take them along.

You can print out the face pieces I used. It’s six 8.5 x 11 pages.
