Create a monster themed name necklace with your child for Halloween this year using a few items from around the house. A playful way to learn to spell your name and the letters of the alphabet for your child.

Here’s how to make.

For the Weekly Virtual Book Club for Kids theme we’re featuring monsters.  To go along with our monster theme we’re making monster necklaces packed full of creativity and fine motor skills development.

Do you have a favorite monster storybook?  Here’s a few of my favorite Monster books for Preschoolers. One popular one is Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberley.

Go Away, Big Green Monster! by Ed Emberley

Caldecott Award-winning author-artist Ed Emberley has created this bold book for children to chase away their nighttime fears. As you read and turn the pages of this die-cut book, you watch the Big Green Monster grow. Then as you continue your child turns the remaining pages and watch him disappear!

Are you ready to see how to make the monster themed craft?

Monster Beads Craft with Pipe Cleaners

Directions for Monster Themed Name Necklace

1. Using scissors, cue the recycled cardboard tubes into 1 inch sections to act as beads for the necklace.

2. Using the pipe cleaners have your child wrap the pipe cleaner around each of the pieces of round tubes to create fuzzy monsters.

3. Ask your child to decorate each cardboard tube into a monster using pipe cleaners and googly eyes. The sillier the better. You can choose to stand up your eyes on pipe cleaners OR simply attach them to the pipe cleaner bead itself for more durability.

4. Add an alphabet foam sticker on each cut tube for the letters in your child’s name. If you want to, you can do all the letters in the alphabet.  You would need 8 cardboard tubes for 26 letters.

5. You can now thread each of the monster letters onto string to create a necklace or simply display standing up.
