Silly Creature

I remember making these "name monsters" when I was in elementary school, and this week we made our own at my house. (I call them "silly creatures", because Ava doesn't have any concept of "monsters" and I'm good with that.) If you want to make one, but are completely unfamiliar with these, I have pictures of the steps here. We made these in cursive writing when I was in school, but I wanted Ava to be able to recognize the letters.

We decorated with items we had on hand - googly-eyes, pipe cleaner, magazine pictures, stickers, buttons, and pom-poms.
If you want, you can make a second silly creature simply by gluing the left over negative space paper down onto another piece of construction paper.
