Disclosure: We received a copy of Pom-Pom Monster Salon from Klutz

I think the lovely folks at Klutz knew about my obsession with adorable monsters when they asked me if I’d like a copy of Pom-Pom Monster Salon.

Aren’t they just as cute as can be? They are so easy to make too.

You can see from the images above that if you change colors in just a small section, it will make a colorful tuft of hair on top of your monster’s head. Then you can add a bow or horns on top, or just leave it as it is.

Grab some cardboard and glue and create your own accessories for your monsters. For example, you could attach eyes out of the top of your monster’s head. Or how about making different hair accessories, arms, legs, or clothing accessories such as a tie? The possibilities are endless and will provide hours of fun for kids as they make a whole collection of monsters.

How many monster color combinations and fun facial features can you make?

Honestly, I don’t know who was more excited about this kit, the kids or me. They love their little monsters and cannot wait to make more in different colors. I can finally throw away the cardboard circles I cut out years ago that I’ve used over and over to make pom-poms. The pom-pom maker that is included in the craft kit makes it so much easier. Being a knitter I have baskets and bags full of yarn, so we can curl up on the couch in front of the fire and make pom-poms all winter long.

We love a lot of the Klutz products. My aunt & MIL buy them for the kids a lot – the Big Bubble maker, the Window Art, Cat’s Cradle and there was a paper swirling one too.

My very first Klutz product was when I was a kid and my mom bought me a Klutz Yo-yo with trick book.. So I have to admit that is still my favorite 🙂

I like the invasion of the bristle bots – they remind me of hexbugs.
