Monster Emotions

 One of my favorite children's books about emotions is Glad Monster, Sad Monster  which we read many times this week. The book came with monster emotion masks for the children to try on.

After reading the book, we decided to make our own monsters using an idea for blown paint monsters that I found on Pinterest. I gave each child a drinking straw and a glob of watered down paint. It took a little practice, but eventually the children were able to blow the paint around on the paper with their straws.

Once the pictures dried, we used googly eyes and markers to make faces on the monsters. Then I asked each child if their monster was glad or sad. 


Our glad and sad monsters made a very colorful classroom display.
