Lorelai was up at 7 am this morning asking to do the monkey craft printable I had sitting on the kitchen table. We were out on the patio in our PJ’s painting this morning. Turned out pretty cute, I think! Directions/Printable at the bottom of this post.
Materials We Used:
- Card Stock – for printing
- 1 Background – optional, but the craft is more stable when glued down
- Paint/Paintbrushes – Brown, Light brown (brown/white mixture)
- 2 Googly Eyes – optional
Directions: Print out the monkey printable. Have your child paint each part of the monkey. I labeled light/dark brown on the printable as a guideline – you don’t have to use it. Allow to dry, then cut out and assemble. I made sure Lorelai glued the arms/legs/ears UNDER the body/head so that it would look better.
Tip: Paint all of the dark brown pieces first, then add some white to the leftover brown to do the lighter pieces. Less to clean!
