Matchbox Monster Pets

I've just finished sorting out the kitchen cupboard and had emptied a couple of small matchboxes. I was looking for a craft to use them, so I thought that the children might enjoy making some tiny monster pets to live inside.

You need:

A matchbox
Coloured paper or card
Small pom poms
Small googly eyes
Any other monster themed embellishments
A Bostik Fine and Wide Glu Pen


First we decorated the outside of the matchboxes. We used coloured paper to wrap around the outside and then they decorated the boxes with small googly eyes, stuck down firmly with the Bostik Fine and Wide Glu pen. This pen is really easy for little ones to use as you just need to squeeze it gently to release the glue. One end is wider for spreading, and the other end has a smaller nozzle for more detailed application.

For the monsters they stuck two small pom poms together and added a googly eye in the middle.

The monsters fit beautifully inside the matchboxes! The children also decorated the insides with pens and coloured paper to make a little home. They've loved playing with them!

The box of craft materials was provided to me free of charge by Bostik as part of the Tots100/Bostik Craft Bloggers Club.
