Here's a way to scare people from snooping around your room!

You will need:
  • Newspaper
  • Balloon
  • PVA Glue
  • Ping Pong Ball
  • Tissue Paper or Kitchen Roll
  • Sticky Tape
  • Cereal Box Card
  • Paint
  • Marker Pen
Blow up a balloon until it's roughly the size of your head.

Stand it in a bowl or shoe box with the tie at the top.
Mix some PVA glue and water, and paste it onto the balloon.

Then cover the balloon with strips of tissue paper or kitchen roll. Go right up to the tie, but don't cover it.

After two layers of glue and tissue paper or kitchen roll, leave to dry.
Once it has dried, cut the tie off the balloon, and when the balloon has deflated pull it out.
To make the eyes for the monster, fold a sheet of newspaper along the long side, then roll it into a rough sausage shape.

Give it a twist to hold it in place.
Next, wrap a ping pong ball up in one end, like this.
Hold it in the middle then fold the paper across, to trap it. Twist the ends and tape in place.
You can make as many of these as you like.

Next, stick them onto the monster using plenty of sticky tape.
To make lips, roll some newspaper into a thin sausage shape and then make it into a ring shape. Use sitcky tape to hold it in place.
Use the same method to make some nostrils for the monster.
To make a tongue, cut out some cereal box card and cover it in newspaper...
...then tape it into position!
Legs are made by rolling more newspaper into sausage shapes.

Again, use sticky tape to hold them in shape!
Tape the legs to the bottom of the balloon.
Use more PVA glue and layers of tissue paper to strengthen the legs.
When dry, you can paint!
And when the paint has dried, you can add detail.

For example, add pupils to the ping pong balls to make them look more like eyes!
That completes your pet monster.

Looks good, doesn't it?
You can make different coloured monsters...
...and you could even make your monster to a different design.

How about this one?
You can even compine more than one kind balloon for a totally different shape!

Try it yourself!
