Kindergarten Shape Monsters

Kindergarteners thought about the art element of shape and we used shapes to create some fun and silly monsters! We watched this "Monster Boogie" video, and sang and danced the song together:

We used Primary Colors to create the big three shapes of the monsters! We watched this Sesame Street youtube video to see how primary colors mix to create Secondary Colors.

On Day 2 of the project, we sang and danced the Monster Boogie again, and read this book about Textured Monsters to get some ideas about what details we could add to our own Shape Monsters.

Learning Goals: 
I can draw and cut a variety of shapes.
I can name basic shapes.
I can make my monsters have different expressions.
I can list the primary colors.
I know the difference between primary and secondary colors. 


  1. Love this! Thanks for sharing!

  2. This is very cute and will be my next K project. We've been painting all year and last week we cut and pasted for the first time. That lesson was goofy pumpkins and we mixed primary colors together to make orange, green and brown. So this is a perfect next project about the primary colors. Thanks.
