Students will create a colored sketch, of their monster or alien. (Show them a drawing the art teacher created, and/or other student examples of monsters, or aliens, so they can use them as inspiration)
Students will stuff their plastic bags for the monster/alien body. Tie in a tight knot when finished.
Wrap string in an area/s of the body, to create different body shapes, or to separate body areas ( IE. head, neck, or waist). Tie in a tight bow or knot, so the shape will stay.
Write name with permanent marker on the plastic bag. (use permanent marker to write names on all parts just in case)
Students will start to attach paper rolls, or roll up newspaper for body parts using masking tape: arms, legs, fingers, antennae, etc...
Students can fill up two or more (depending on number of legs) plastic bags with small rocks for feet. Tie in knot, and cut off excess plastic tie if needed.
Attach feet to legs using plenty of masking tape.
Wrap entire body and parts with desired colors of torn masking tape. Do not use scissors to cut tape, tearing the tape is best.
Try to put duct tape on evenly, so there are too many wrinkles, and to ensure smooth appearance.
Options for eyes, nose and mouth: use craft foam, or felt to create the parts or details of face. Also can use this for details: finger or toe nails, or added accessories.
