Craft for Kids: Peg Monsters

We thought we’d share with you these little monsters we made with our kids last week – the monsters talk by pinching the peg open. They’re quick, easy and require very little materials. Whoop! Watch our video tutorial above or read on for the tutorial.

You will need:

  • Wooden clothes peg
  • Coloured card
  • Felt tip pens
