Draw the outline of a monkey on the foam. The monkey should be bigger than the magnet but no larger than a postcard. Trace a picture from a book or magazine, or create your own monkey by drawing a circle for the stomach, a smaller circle for the mouth, and a small crescent shaped piece for a banana.
Keep the shape of your monkey simple or it
will be hard to cut out.
Use the poster paint to paint a nose, mouth, stomach, and other features on your monkey. Let the paint dry.
Glue on the googly eyes to the monkey’s face with tacky glue.
Cut out the monkey and pieces.
Glue the mouth, belly, and banana onto the monkey with tacky glue, and let it dry.
Glue the magnet onto the back of the monkey using a dot of tacky glue and let it dry.Now put your cheerful new pet to work holding up this week’s lunchroom menu.
