My Monster Power Cards

My Monster Power Cards craft

Hobbies are a great way for kids to explore their interests and talents. Young collectors are fascinated with their own imaginary monsters.

  • 1.

    Fold white paper into quarters. In each quarter, draw imaginary monsters with Crayola® Colored Pencils. Fill in darker lines and areas with Crayola Fine Line Markers.

  • 2.

    Write the name each monster. Make up a number rating system for the different monsters' powers, and mark these on the cards.

  • 3.

    Photocopy the cards and color them with colored pencils.

  • 4.

    Fold construction paper in quarters to make a backing for the cards. (For even sturdier cards, use recycled file folders.)

  • 5.

    Glue cards onto backings with a Crayola Glue Stick. With Crayola Scissors, cut the drawings and backings along the fold lines.

  • 6.

    Make up a game with your cards to play with friends. Decorate a recycled cardboard box to hold cards. Trade cards, too.
