7 Steps to Create Magnetic Frankenstein’s Monster

Anyone can participate in making this fun craft. If you allow your children to help out, please make sure you or another adult is in the room to supervise. 


Follow these steps: 


  1. Paint the flat side of the snap lid with your green paint and set it off to the side to dry.
  2. Grab your black construction paper and cut out the bolts and hair for your monster. If you want a more accurate cut, use a photo for reference or print off a stencil.
  3. By now, your paint should be dry. Take the hair, bolts, and googly eyes and glue them onto the lid to create the monster’s face.
  4. Use your marker to draw the mouth and stitches on the face. 
  5. Allow the facial features and then flip your craft over. 
  6. Grab your disc magnet and glue it on the lip side of the lid. Wait for it to dry.
  7. Hang up your new decorations on your fridge, the whiteboard in your office, etc.
