Back-to-School: Homework Monster Journal

Create a homework monster journal using a plain notebook, construction paper, googly eyes, and glue dots.  Lets face it homework is no fun for kids or parents.  I don't know how many times I have sat at the kitchen table helping my children with their homework thinking homework is the most evil chore ever!  These kids should be outside riding their bikes, climbing trees, anything but having to sit here and do homework after a long day of school.

Why not have a little fun with the dreaded homework and make a homework monster journal!

First begin by purchasing a plain inexpensive plain notebook.

Next, have children cut a monster body out of construction paper.

Cut out the monster's features: nose, mouth, ears, tail, and claws.

Using glue dots attach the monster's features to the notebook. Layer the features using glue dots.

Optional: Using acrylic painters pens write Homework Journal along the binding or the front cover.
