To prepare the cereal box, look for the glue flap which holds it together. Then carefully tear apart and flatten the box. On the larger sides, cut a rectangle about a ½” smaller than the size of your tracing paper. And on the middle narrow portion, cut a 1/8” strip out about a quarter inch from one of the folds. Your final piece should look like this
Use glue or tape to put the box back together. And if you have any, use deco tape to make the box look less like a cereal box. Set aside.
Now cut out a few silhouettes of monkeys from black card stock. If you have trouble doing this, print out some silhouettes you find online. Just be sure to color both sides black with a marker.
