Tissue Box Monster Feet

Do you have some tissue boxes?  Let’s make them into monster feet!  Last year the girls’ preschool made these and the kids loved them.  I like the idea of recycling trash into toys.  I also like crafts that are easy enough for kids to make it mostly themselves.

  1. Cut out the plastic in the top opening of the tissue box.  (I did this part.)
  2. Paint boxes whatever color you want.
  3. Cut out toes from construction paper and glue to the bottom of the box.
  4. Optional step:  We used a texture brush to do a final coat with sparkly paint.

The end product isn’t perfect, but it is kid-made and they had fun painting.

Materials:

  • 2 tissue boxes
  • construction paper
  • scissors
  • glue

  • texture brush (optional)

Time investment: 15 minutes (plus extra time for the paint to dry)

Difficulty:  Elementary kids could it all by themselves, preschoolers might need some help with the cutting.

  1. My girls always loved sticking their feet in kleenex boxes and skating around the house. Making them into monster feet would be lots of fun for sure!
