CIY Staff Tips:

  • If you don’t have Popsicle sticks at home, substitute craft sticks instead.
  • Experiment with other supplies like chenille stems and cotton swabs to make a frighteningly good family of monsters!


Step 1

Cover 5–7 Popsicle sticks with paint. Dry 1–2 hours. Add second coat. Dry 1–2 hours.

Step 2

Line up painted Popsicle sticks side by side. Glue unpainted Popsicle stick across the middle to hold sticks together and create base for monster arms.

Step 3

Let glue dry 15–30 minutes, then flip sticks over.

Step 4

Sketch and cut out construction paper mouth.

Step 5

Draw teeth in mouth with markers. Glue to Popsicle sticks.

Step 6

Sketch and cut out cardstock body parts such as arms, horns, and tail. Glue to Popsicle sticks.

Step 7

Glue wiggle eyes to Popsicle sticks. Let all glue steps dry 1–2 hours.

Step 8

Create more creatures for a monster mash!
