You need:

pencil, pen, marker

paint and  brushes

scissors and craft-knife*

double-sided sticky tape or pads

Monsters in the garden...

 Make a mask from plywood or

MDF, paint with waterproof paint

and place in the garden as a

bird-scarer. Add foil to the eyes to reflect  the light. (adult project)

 Make a mini-mask from thin card replacing the eye holes with googly eyes. Add a lolly stick handle to make a plant marker.

...and in the kitchen.
