Can you imagine living in a world where no one loves you and you feel all alone? That’s how Love Monster feels! This story written by Rachel Bright takes us on Love Monster’s journey as he finds love when he least expects it. Today I’m sharing how to make this Love Monster craft and writing activity that you can use after reading this story.
First, you’ll need to print and cut out all of the templates. Using a black marker or crayon, students will add a variety of lines all around, while avoiding the area just above the mouth.
The lines should be short strokes and can be placed at different angles to create a hairy looking monster like the illustrations in the story.
Have students glue the eyes down just below the top edge of the body and above the mouth. Students can use black marker or crayon to add the eyeballs.
Next, students will glue the teeth in place along the monster’s mouth line. I added some teeth templates, but students can also create their own teeth by cutting small white triangles. The illustrations in the story include heavy black outlines, so after gluing things in place, students can use their marker or crayon to outline the eyes, teeth, and heart.
The heart should be glued down below the mouth and to the right side of the body.
Students can complete one of the three writing prompts. Then students can glue the paper down near the bottom of the body and glue the hands in place so Love Monster is holding the writing piece.
