Sick Day Craft for Kids – Kleenex Tissue Box Monsters

Sick Day Craft for Kids – Kleenex Tissue Box MonstersWhat happens when your kids get sick? But aren’t sick enough to stay in bed – only stay home from school? These Kleenex box monsters are an excellent way to dress up the tissue box which will probably have to be close at hand.

Supplies Needed:

  • Scrapbooking papers or pattern papers
  • Pipe Cleaners or “Chenelle Stems”
  • Googly Eyes
  • Party Horns
  • Pom Poms
  • Plastic cups for feet
  • Crinkle cut paper

Other optional supplies not shown that you can use instead include fake grass or yarn for hair, felt pieces, toilet paper tubes cut into sections instead of medicine cups, etc. Use your imagination and follow the video tutorial below!

Wrap the box in decorative paper (cut out the hole using the cardboard piece as a pattern). Glue on your eyes, ears and other facial decorations. Glue on the hair with paper shred, fake grass or yarn. Create the feet with medicine cups as shown, or cut paper towel tubes into one-inch wide sections and use those as feet.

I love that you can really let your child be creative and imaginative, even if they aren’t feeling 100%. Because one thing back-to-school season brings – sick days. Now at least they don’t have to be boring days as well.
