    Cut out your monkeys with Crayola Scissors. Decorate them with silly shirts, vivid vests, or nifty numerals if you like.

    Draw monkey heads and feet on the leftover paper. Decorate with Twistables and cut them out.

    To make arms and tails, place a chenille stick inside the fold of each monkey. Bend the tail out the bottom and the arm out the side. Lay the head and feet in place. Seal together with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry monkeys.
