Book Craft: “How to Catch a Monster”

This easy craft is perfect for younger Girl Scouts (or younger siblings) and is a great follow-up to How to Catch a Monster by Adam Wallace and Andy Elkerton.

Materials Needed:

  • Pencil
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Markers
  • White paper or colored construction paper- If the construction paper is not available, shapes can be drawn on white paper and colored.

Draw and cut out your monster.

Draw and cut out your monster’s eyes, nose, feet, hands, tail, and heart shaped face.

Glue the eyes, nose, feet, hands, tail, and face on your monster.

Once you are finished adding your parts, embellish the monster by drawing some pupils on the eyes, eyebrows, nostrils on the nose, mouth, and some hair! Make your monster cute or scary!

We want to hear how your girl is using her Girl Scout skills by taking initiative, caring for the community, and Girl Scouting at home. She can send in her story here.
