Recycled Craft: Tissue Box Monsters (aka Boogie Monsters)

No, I’m not a 12-year-old boy, but I couldn’t resist when it came to renaming these recycled tissue box creatures “boogie monsters.”  Get it?  Because you use tissue to wipe your boog…Yeah, you get it.  My 4-year-old and I had fun putting these together, and what a great Earth Day craft.

What I Learned the Hard Way:  I originally found this idea through someone else who found it at Giggles Galore, where Mariah calls them Tattle Monsters.  She used white craft foam, and it would be a lot easier to work with.  As you can see, our teeth ripped before we were even done making our craft.  If you’re like me, though, and are stubborn enough to just use what you have on hand, I’d recommend doing the antennas before gluing in the teeth.
