I start teaching an “Out of this World” Summer Camp on Monday, so I’ve been collecting ideas for the past few months in preparation. I found this great alien/monster idea on Craft Jr. that I played around with this afternoon. Here is the result. It was really fun, especially taking all the photos. Instead of using tissue paper I used duct tape because, well, duct tape rules. You can seriously make anything with that stuff. The duct tape worked great, only elmers glue doesn’t really work on it, so I had to duct tape everything together. I used water bottles for the arms and painted them silver. This activity is pretty endless. I used a cereal box, toilet paper rolls, and a medicine box for the body, but you can use anything. I’m excited to see what the kids come up with!
recycled items, duct tape (or paint or tissue paper), pipe cleaners, googly eyes
