We found this pin on pinterest and both of us loved it instantly and thankfully we had all the materials on hand. We grabbed a Kleenex box that looked like scales and an old egg carton. I then handed Maddie some glue, scissors, and construction paper and let her imagination go. I helped her glue the teeth to the inside of the box and tape the piece of the egg carton on the top. She gave the monster some ice cream (on the right) and bandaides for his owie (on the left). There are hands and scales that you can't see but we are both happy with the outcome.
In the end I'm glad that Maddie wouldn't let me help her decorate. She is very proud with how it turned out and I love let her use her imagination.
Did your little one have to decorate a box for school? What did you come up with?
