Halloween spirit, crafting your very own paper monsters is a fantastic way to do it. In this guide, we'll explore a variety of ghoulishly delightful paper craft monster projects that are easy, affordable, and perfect for kids of all ages.

Materials you will need

  • Construction Paper (various Halloween theme colors)
  • Glue Stick
  • Safety Scissors
  • Googly Eyes
  • Markers
  • Pencil


  1. Start by drawing the outline of your monster on a piece of construction paper. This can be any shape your little one imagines - a blob, a creature, or even a classic Halloween character like a ghost or a bat.
  2. Cut out the monster shape carefully using safety scissors.
  3. Use different colors of construction paper to create features like eyes, mouths, noses, and more. Cut them out and glue them onto your monster's body.
  4. Glue on googly eyes for an extra touch of monster magic or use black and white papers!
  5. Draw arms, legs, tails, or any other monster details you'd like on the monster using markers.
  6. Decorate your monster's body with markers or not. You could scars, stitches, or anything else that makes them truly monstrous.

Pro tip: Encourage your little ones to give each monster a unique name and personality. Who's the friendliest monster, and who's the scariest? Our littles monsters went on a scary adventure, watch the reel.
