It’s been a while since I’ve typed the letters DIY around here, but what can I say, the holiday bring it out of me. The cool thing is my kids are finally old enough to where I can hand them some supplies, rough directions and let them go for it.
Our Halloween decorations are still up in the attic but instead of waiting for my husband to go up and grab them for us (because I don’t want to deal with spiders thank you very much), we went ahead and made something new to display until we get out other things down.
These are juice box monsters, and they are so easy to make. So easy my kids basically made these by themselves. And they turned out super cute.
Here’s the materials you’ll need to make these:
Juicy Juice boxes (empty or full)
Step 1 (optional)
My son liked drinking his juice box then working with an empty juice container, but this is optional. If you’re hosting a Halloween party with kids you may want to keep the juice box full and have these little monsters set up as a decoration that doubles as a fun drink.
Cut the construction paper to fit around the juice box. No need to be exact, it can fold over itself a little bit. Then tape it down.
Decorate the front with silly faces. Use googly eyes, cut pieces of construction paper to make mouthes or hair etc. You can also get creative and use other household items such as toilet paper to make faces.
My son isn’t into crafting at all. Coloring isn’t his thing, and glue gives him the heebie jeebies. But he was happy to participate in this activity because it involved drinking his favorite juice. He made a monster all by himself and proudly showed it off when he was done.
My daughter on the other hand made half a dozen by herself, and even kept going once I was done taking photos, so we’ll be drinking from decorated juice boxes all month.
You can find a bunch of other family time activities on the Juice Juice Family Time page. Juicy Juice products are made from real juice, with sweetness that comes from the fruit and no added sugar or artificial sweeteners!
I’m teaming up with Juicy Juice this to share our family adventures and inspire others to enjoy family time together. All opinions are my own.
