Colorful Doodle Monster - finished doodle monster with wiggle eye addedHere is a cute back-to-school activity for the art class. Turn twine doodles into colorful monsters! A fun way to explore creativity and to play around with colors. It can also be used at home, or as a playful activity to entertain a small group of friends.


Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: one doodle monster


  • A4 sheet of ordinary white printer paper
  • 1mm wide cotton twine
  • 25mm wiggle eye
  • quick-drying craft glue (such as Bostik Clear)
  • set of 24-color watercolor paint set
  • Kenton brown acrylic paint
  • paintbrush
  • standard scissors
  • pencil
  • ruler
  • sponge - use one that was in a medicine bottle
  • plastic cup with water


  1. Measure and draw a pencil frame 1.2" from the edge of the paper.
  2. Colorful Doodle Monster - create a pencil drawn frame 1/2 inch in from the edge of the paper
  3. Create a doodle from the twine - cut pieces of twine and glue them onto the paper. Make sure that there are no open ends. Tip: For younger children, let them use a black bullet-point marker to draw a doodle.
  4. Colorful Doodle Monster - cut twine and begin creating the doodle
    Colorful Doodle Monster - finish doodle, leave no open ends

  5. Use the watercolor set to paint each section of the doodle - do not use any color twice. Tip: If you do not have a 24-color set of watercolor paints, you can also use food colorings, watercolor pencils, or acrylic paints.
  6. Colorful Doodle Monster - begin painting with water colors or other pigments
    Colorful Doodle Monster - adding more colors
    Colorful Doodle Monster - no color the same
  7. Use the sponge and the brown paint to stamp a frame around the design.
  8. Colorful Doodle Monster - use the sponge and brown paint to stamp a frame around the edge
  9. Complete the monster by gluing the wiggle eye in place. Tip: It is a monster, so why not add three or four or five wiggle eyes? ;-)
