Arts and Crafts: Make Your Own Monster!

As some of you know, I have a really adorable job: I work in the after school program at my local library. I thought it would be fun to start sharing some of our activities. You can also follow the kids' blog here. 

Make Your Own Monster is the most fun ever. The kids pick 5 slips from the list of possible monster qualities, create a monster with all of those qualities, then write a story from the monster's point of view. The list of possible monster-qualities is I think my favorite thing that I have ever written.
