Carrie @ spaceforthebutterflies.com and her family decided to create monster with a bat origin using silver and gold pens and acrylic paint and felt tip pens. Carie commented:

‘We firstly played a game of monstrous consequences by drawing the head, folding it over and passing it onto the next person. They then draw the body.’
