YuKonstruct put together "Make Your Own Monster" kits for one of our all-ages craft nights. Making monsters is fun for makers of all ages!

These kits, with everything you need to design and make a little felt monster, would be great for any kids camp, birthday party or just to have on hand for when you need a rainy day activity.

YuKonstruct is the first makerspace in Canada's north. Our mission is to provide access to shared space, quality tools, available expertise, and a collaborative environment to help makers build anything!

Step 1: Gather Your Materials

Collect the materials for your kits

This is what we used, feel free to throw in extra craft supplies:

  • buttons
  • pompoms
  • googly eyes
  • pipe cleaners
  • pieces of different coloured felt
  • needle and sewing thread
  • stuffing
  • fake fur

We wanted each kit to be unique, so we switched up the colours and materials slightly for each one.

Additional tools you may need to make the monsters (not included inside the kits):

  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • markers, crayons or pens
Voted! :)
I found kits like this (but not as detailed) at the Dollar Store. My son loved them! Making your own is even BETTER! So clever! Love it!
<p>Very cool idea! I love little kid crafts like this. Well done! :)</p>
