With Halloween coming up, we decided to have some monster fun. These modern mix and match monsters are playful, fun and portable. They make a great toy for kids to engage in hours of fun beyond Halloween. All you need is are some magnetic sheets, a tray and the free printables to make your own!
Modern Mix and Match Magnetic Monsters – Materials:
– Metal tray (like a cookie sheet)
– Free Printable Monster Parts – Download right below
Print out the monster parts (download here) and cut around them, no need to be precise as you can do that when they’re on the magnet sticker sheet.
Peel off the sticker on the magnet sheet and place monster parts on them. Cut precisely around each part. See example below for the eyes.
When you’re done, you’ll have all your parts ready to mix and match.
Simply place them on your metal tray and have the kids create different combinations of monsters. Our kids had so much fun mixing and matching the parts. There are endless variations!
