Monster Scissor Skills

I love Halloween crafts so much! I think that one of the main reasons why they are so fun is that you get to use googly eyes – lots of them. Googly eyes make your monsters, ghosts and ghouls look Halloween spooky, but also kind of cute. If you don’t have googly eyes at home for your Halloween crafts, then this FREE printable worksheet might be perfect for you.
