Milk Jug Monster

Print Friendly

This milk jug monster was really easy to make, and can be used many different ways. I used him as a target, and we threw balls into his mouth. We actually used the angry birds dog toys , but balls or bean bags would work perfectly.

To make the monster, I took a clean milk jug, and cut out a mouth with scissors. I then spray painted him green, but other colors would work well too. Then I just stuck large stick-on googly eyes onto him. You could add other monster decorations as well, such as hair, teeth, etc.

  1. This is a cute idea. I noticed that the milk jug monster bears a close resemblance to the octopus in your logo. It just needs some tentacles. I like the idea of the bean bag toss. Please link this post (and any other arts crafts and play posts) to Artsy Play Wednesday on Capri + 3.
