This monster can stand by itself or you can put it on your head for a costume.  Clap or make a loud sound and it will come to life.

How To Make It


Find a cardboard box. Cut out space for eyes and mouth.
Place (1) DC motor and styrofoam ball behind each eye and connect with wire.


Construct a scary mouth. You can use any found objects. I used tongue depressors and toothpicks. Place (3) vibration motors behind mouth and wire to connect.


Connect with wire to sound trigger and power.
Make a noise and see your monster come to life.
