Monster Crafts for Kids

Our monster crafts for kids will bring one of Disney/Pixar's greatest movies to your crafting table! Recently there was a sequel (or call it prequel) to the Monsters Inc movie - Monsters University.

Here's a fun craft to make your very own mini Mike Wazowski.

Crafts made with Yarn!

Taking a favorite movie and turning it into a craft makes it that much more fun - especially if the favorite character is the one you are making. 

Mike Wazowski is one of the two main characters for Monsters Inc, and he is cute for a scary monster.

Mini Mike Wazowski

Follow these monster crafts for kids instructions to make your own version of the Monsters Inc star.

We have used hot glue to make this, it does speed up the process but it is super easy to do with regular glue too. You will just have to hold the stuff together for a minute while it sets.

Craft Supplies:

  • Large pom pom (green)
  • 2 small pom poms (green)
  • 1 large googly eye
  • Green pipe cleaner
  • Red craft foam
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Step #1:

Cut your pipe cleaner in half. Set one half aside for his legs. 

With the other half, bend it into a U shape. At each end bend three fingers into the end.

Set this aside for a moment.

Step #2:

Cut a mouth shape out of the red craft foam. 

Make it into a half moon shape.

Step #3:

With the second half of your pipe cleaner, cut it in half again.

Glue a small green pom pom to the bottom of each one. Bend the tops slightly..

Step #4:

Twist the bent ends of each leg to the center of the arms you had set aside. 

Space the two legs slightly apart.

Step #5:

Glue the arms and legs to the large green pom pom. 

Step #6

Glue your large googly eye, and half moon mouth to the center of the large green pom pom.

Set him aside to dry up.
