gliding monsters

This is a fun craft for kids of all ages.

Did you know that without gravity, we would fall right off of Earth’s surface and float away?

Or that gravity is the reason our monster comes back down after reaching the top, instead of just traveling higher and higher?

Make as many monsters as you like. Remember that you are going to cut your monster out, so make simple shapes outside the body if you battle with cutting, or stick/ staple or clip the arms and legs on afterwards.


And it's time to play!
