With Mother’s Day fast approaching, kids can still create an adorable handmade gift from the heart! The Wikki Stix monkey craft is a whimsical addition to a printable coupon book that will delight moms this Mother’s Day!
Mother’s Day Coupon Book and Monkey Craft for Kids!
Materials needed for the Monkey Craft:
- Brown Wikki Stix
- White Wikki Stix
- Black Wikki Stix
- Any Additional Color of Wikki Stix for the Monkey’s body
Set out all supplies on a table or a large tray and invite the children to create.
Step 1: Create the monkey’s head by wrapping one tight pinwheel with one brown Wikki Stix. Wrap another brown Wikki Stix around the initial pinwheel and set aside.
Step 2: Create two tight pinwheels with brown Wikki Stix (these pinwheels will become the monkey’s ears). Press each brown pinwheel behind the monkey’s head.
Step 3: Create monkey eyes with small cut pieces of white and black Wikki Stix. Press the monkey’s eyes to the head.
Step 4: Create a bell-shaped outline for the monkey’s body with Wikki Stix. Once the initial outline is created, kids can fill-in the outline with additional Wikki Stix. Press the monkey’s body slightly behind the monkey’s head.
Step 5: Cut one brown Wikki Stix into fourths. Each piece can be pressed to the monkey’s body to create the arms and legs for the monkey craft.
Step 6: Curl the end of one brown Wikki Stix to create the monkey’s tail. Press the tail behind the monkey’s body (see photo).
