While Mickey colored the paper plate, I worked on cutting out the little pieces. I cut them out of another paper plate so that the paper would be as stiff as the paper plate was. I liked that idea and I'm still happy with that decision.
After it was all colored, Mickey colored in the eyeball and then we worked together to glue on the monster teeth, horns and eyeball.
He was quite pleased with the end result, but wanted this to be a mask instead of just a monster face (always thinking outside the box, this kid.) and, thankfully, I had some large tongue depressors that I thought would work nicely. It didn't hold up very well on the back as I would've liked, but I'm sure with some more time to prep and make it work, it would've stayed on a little better. We taped it to the back of the paper plate and it worked ever-so temporarily.
This was a quick project that required little assistance from my part but Mickey really enjoyed. It's a great rainy-day or it's-too-hot-to-be-outside-day project and it takes just long enough to not be too long. (You know, children with their short attention spans and all...) Anyway, easy, quick and fun. Yep, I enjoyed this one and Mickey did too!
