Title: Shape Monsters – Creative Shape Transformation

Get ready to unleash your creativity and imagination with Shape Monsters! In this fun and educational activity, we will explore shapes and transform them into quirky and colorful monsters. Let your artistic skills shine as you give life to your very own Shape Monsters!


  • Paper or drawing pad
  • Colored pencils, markers, or crayons


  1. Begin by drawing a variety of shapes on your paper. Include circles, squares, triangles, rectangles, and any other shapes you like. These will serve as the bodies of your monsters.
  2. Once you have drawn the shapes, it’s time to transform them into monsters! Add faces, eyes, arms, legs, and other features to give each shape its unique personality. Let your imagination run wild and have fun creating funny, friendly, or even silly monsters.
  3. Use your colored pencils, markers, or crayons to bring your Shape Monsters to life. Experiment with different colors and patterns to make each monster vibrant and eye-catching.
  4. As you create your monsters, think about the characteristics of each shape. How can you incorporate those features into your monster’s design? For example, a triangle shape can become a pointy hat or a toothy grin.
  5. You can also name your monsters and imagine stories or adventures they might have. Share your ideas and stories with others to enhance your storytelling and social skills.
  6. Encourage them to have fun, embrace their creativity, and let their Shape Monsters come to life!
