Kids Monster Kit Peek + Giveaway!

by Hero Arts September 17, 2020 234 Comments

Are you ready for something monstrously fun? We are excited to announce a special limited-edition Kids Monster Kit, coming soon! Your little monsters are going to love getting creative with this playful and educational kit packed with fun and games!

You can pre-order the Kids Monster Kit starting Monday, September 21 at 10am PT. Once sold out, the kit will be gone. The kit and any items ordered with the kit will ship together starting October 9, at the same time as our upcoming October My Monthly Hero Kit.

So let's get this monster party started, shall we?! Jayne is here to share the first look - a super creative way to use the Kids Monster Kit!

I had so much fun playing with this delightful kit! When I saw the tub of adorable monster stamps, I decided to make a children’s bingo-style matching game. Choosing picture tokens from a bowl, the object of the game is to be the first to match five pictures, by image and color, in a single row. Not only is this game fun to play with young children, but with a little guidance, this craft is simple enough for children to make themselves.

Although the number of images on the game board can vary, I made a traditional board with 25 squares. I cut a five inch square of Dove White cardstock and then using a t-square and a black marker, I drew a grid of four vertical lines and four horizontal lines at every inch. Then, after stamping the star image in the center square for a free space, I randomly stamped a monster or a monster phrase with Intens-ified Black ink into each of the other spaces. I used colored pencils to color each image, being careful to color repeated images with different colors.

After coloring all of the images, I secured the game board to a larger piece of Meadow cardstock. I also stamped a row of monsters and phrases across the top edge of the panel with Embossing & Watermark ink. Using a heat gun, I embossed the images with white embossing powder.

To make the picture tokens which are drawn from a bowl to determine which space players cover on their board, I die cut lots of small circles from white cardstock using a Nesting Circle Infinity Die. I stamped each circle with one of the same images or words on the game board and then I colored them with the same colors. For extra durability, I secured each picture token to a colored cardstock circle.

Finally, to make the chips used to cover the pictures on the game boards, I simply used a smaller circle die to cut cardstock discs. Then, for maximum monster appeal, I added a self-adhesive googly eye to the center of each chip. It’s a super easy detail that’s sure to bring a few smiles.

This kit is ideal for ages 6-12 and up (and of course adults who still feel like kids!) Crafting is a great way to teach creative play, color learning, inspire imagination, and more. 

WIN A KIT BEFORE YOU CAN BUY IT: Just leave a comment on this blog post and we'll randomly draw one lucky winner from all the comments to win a kit. The winner will be announced first thing Monday morning, September 21, before the kit launches at 10am Pacific. Good luck!

Come back tomorrow for another peek and giveaway!

This is so cute! And it’s a game that can be fun for kids of different skill levels(siblings) together just by changing how you color the cards(random vs. columns) or letting them see the chips vs. calling them!
