In the colder months we definitely tend to do more crafts.
All NEW! Whether you are looking for a quick monkey craft for a jungle themed party, or some inspiration for Year of the Monkey and Chinese New Year, or your child just loves monkeys... we hope we've got something for you here! We've used to "junk" and easy to find materials and you can adapt the crafts to work with all ages of children.
This little monkey is a great way to mark your child's territory - and he'll be even more appreciated if your child makes the door hanger themselves!
We used a large yoghurt pot lid for the "face" of our monkey magnet, and he looks so happy and cheerful on the fridge that I think he might stay there for a while! This could be a fun party craft as long as you had collected enough lids for all the children.
Imagine this paper plate monkey on display on the wall - or maybe a whole "flock" of them! It's such a fun and simple monkey craft for little kids, I hope you will have a go.
Here's a fun use for a paper plate - a monkey mask! Cutting out the eyes the way we have makes this a really easy mask for younger children to play with.
This cheeky little monkey is made from a loo roll and a few pieces of card or paper. He looks great sitting on the edge of a shelf or the top of a cupboard, or perched on the rim of flower pot in front of a "jungle" plant, with his legs dangling over the sides!
