Have you already read the picture book Monsta (Dita Zipfel/De Vier Windstreken)? Then you must have fallen completely in love with this amazing monster. In this book, Monsta tells his own story, in a very funny way. He lives under the bed of a child he had chosen himself, but scaring it doesn't really want to work so well. A great book that really makes you happy, with super fun illustrations with funny spelling mistakes by Monsta, you should not miss this book!
Do you also want to craft a Monsta, to play with it during or after reading? That's a piece of cake! Print the free template, color, cut and paste it on 2 toilet rolls. Give him eyes, arms and legs and your Monsta can be under your bed! Let's see if he can scare you at night?
MONSTA- Dita Zipfel /Mateo Dineen(The Four Winds)
This whole story is telling through brieffies and character inkies of mine, Monsta. - It's funny boy!
Hello, I'm Monsta! Don't start stripping your red pen right away. I can't help it if I find slack so hard.
In this bookie, I specially picked a child to live with him under the bed and make him creep every day. I'm doing my best. I had doors squatting, stuffed hugs, practiced creepy faces (I can now 47 different!) and snapped mun knuckles.
But what do you think? Nothing!
Nothing at all.
Not an ounce of creep to be found with that kid.
And now I'm tired of it.
Monsta would like to visit you too! Grab your colors, scissors and glue and get started!
Save the template first (save it with right mouse button) on your computer/device and from that saved folder you can print it in A4 format. If it is good, it fits (cut out) exactly to 2 toilet rolls. If you don't want to use toilet rolls, you can also cut a towel in half:) For the arms and legs you have 2 chenille threads needed.
We color here with Crayola wax crayons , with a box of 64 colors there is always a nice color! You can also color with colored pencil, felt-tip pens or pastel chalk, whatever you want!
Do not use the stapler 2 rolls together, top and bottom. The cut out and coloured pattern can be rolled around it and with adhesive tape you can stick it on the back. So no mess with glue. Draw the pupils in the white milk caps with a black permanent marker (e.g. Edding 300 Black, White ) and glue them on.
Punch a hole at the place of the arms (if necessary, make the hole larger with a sat-stick) and push the chenille wire down through the hole. You got the legs right now! (Or are they “paws”? ) Cut off each arm 3cm, with it you make the feet. You can make some wild hair from a piece of iron wire (or cloths of sandwich bags). Form them to e.g. the piercing pin to get some curly. Stick the hairs with some adhesive tape to the back of the paper eyes.
Our Monsta is ready! He can't wait for us to read the book again. Tonight, when it gets dark... do you get shivers or scared hickies?
