Make a Love Monkey!
Looking to craft something cute for Valentine’s Day?
*Get all the supplies you need at Scribbleshop.com – click here for easy shopping!To make this craft, you will need: - Crayola Model Magic Clay in Red - Silver Glitter Foam - Red Glitter Foam - Red Ribbon - Tacky Glue - Scissors - Googly Eyes - Glitter Glue
To start, split the package of red clay into thirds. Roll 1/3 of the clay into a ball to make the head, and 2/3 of the clay into a ball to make the body.
On the back of the silver glitter foam, draw the Monkey ears (about the size of M & Ms), an oval face, and a stomach in an egg/potato shape. On the red glitter foam, draw a small heart shape about an inch tall, arms, feet and a tail. It helps to practice drawing the shapes onto paper first and then comparing the proportions to the clay balls you have made for the head and body. You can use those paper cut outs as templates when you draw on the foam.
Add googly eyes into the two bumps of the heart and a red ribbon bow to give your love monkey a bow tie, then finish with a little extra embellishment. I added a toothpick with a heart cut-out. It kind of looks like he is holding a sign or a balloon, no?
