Monster Painting

I adapted Danya Banya's Sponge Monsters so we could do it this week with the materials I had available.  I gathered a variety of items (listed below) for my 3 year old to use to paint his own monsters.

He used the egg cartoon and pool noodle equally, creating big and small circular shapes.  I didn't tell him we would be making them monsters when they dried because I wanted him to just have fun with the painting.

He really enjoyed using the Halloween stamps once I added them to the mix.  The pipe cleaners and pom poms held by clothespins he used like paint brushes.  (I also had a fun time creating my own picture.)


  • washable paint 
  • construction paper
  • egg cartons
  • pipe cleaners
  • pom-poms
  • clothespins 
  • cut up pool noodle
  • tray (for paint) 
  • Halloween stamps (optional) 

Our completed projects without adding anything. 


Our projects when we added eyes, noses, and hair.

I am indebted to Danya Banya's Blog: Creative Activities for Kids and Mum for this idea.  Thank you.
