Gourd Monsters

Halloween and fall art craft for kids

This is a fun and cute activity that your kid will be sure to love. It will be something they will enjoy making and love to keep as a keepsake. These fun little monsters are perfect for Halloween or any time of the year! Pet rock, chia pet, invisible friend? Who needs ‘em? Now, your child can have their very own Gourd Monster!
