When my youngest child was little he developed a fear of monsters. Anything that even remotely looked like a monster would cause tears, and he was waking during the night with ‘monster dreams’. We made these cute monster puppets to help cope with his fears and build a more friendly idea of a ‘monster’ in his mind, and it worked!
He suddenly became really interested in all things monster… as long as the monsters were’t too scary!
To build on his interest in monsters and to allow him to control the level of ‘scariness’ I made these monster drawing prompts.
These monster drawing prompts offer a starting point, just a little something to spark imaginations and encourage your child’s creativity. Unlike a traditional coloring page, kids need to come up with their own ideas and designs for this drawing activity. There are no right or wrong ways to make a monster, and it allows kids control over who scary, spooky, or silly their monsters will be.
These monster drawing prompts are a fun, quick, and easy, Halloween art activity that works for all ages. They are a great way to encourage a reluctant drawer, a great boredom buster, and a fun way to work through any lingering fears of monsters!
