Closet Monster

Then open the door and...

This is such a fun project that the kids loved. I began by having them close their eyes and pretend they were going to bed. They had already put on their pajamas and brushed their teeth. They had just layed their heads down on their soft pillows when ...BAM! (I made some noises by pounding on a desk). I then asked them what it could be. Eventually, someone guessed it was the monster in their closet. I then had them describe to me what their monster looked like. They each then got to create their monster using oil pastels on black construction paper. The oil pastels show up much brighter on the dark paper. Then they drew their door and I then stapled the two together for them.
