Monster Math

I love how this craft evolved!  My initial plan was to have Eva make some cute monsters using her hand and foot prints.  She took it a step further and made it a counting activity as well.  To start Eva chose four color paints to use and I painted her hands and feet.  She stamped them on a piece of yellow cardstock.
When they were dry, I got out the googly eyes and Eva decided that her monsters would have 1, 2, 3 and 4 eyes.
I added the numbers and mouths and we ended up with some really cute monsters!
