The best way to play monster is with these life size finger puppets made as a special project by Creature Features. I guess it would also be great fun to make one of these dress up monsters with the kids. Let them draw on a large white sheet, get a contrast coloured fabric from the market (or another old sheet) and sew them togehter. In the area of the nose you take some see through (I'd probably use material you would use for screens to keep insects out) black material. And don't forget while you are sewing to keep the open space for the arms. That makes these little monsters extra scary.
