  • Step 1Download and print out the templates. We recommend printing on cover paper as this provides a great surface for decorating.
  • Print enough for each child to complete their own, or alternatively print it out on A3 cover paper and get groups or the whole class to complete the activity collaboratively.
  • Step 2Decorate, cut out and construct the die. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors. Use glue on the die tabs to hold it together.
  • Step 3Use the die to complete the Monster feature’s table by rolling the die and recording your results. You can even add equations to each feature to extend the maths for older children!
  • Step 4Name and draw your monster based on your completed table.
  • To extend further on the activity you could even get the children to create 3D models of their monster!
  • Step 5Now you have your very own unique monster, write a story about its adventures!
