Here is a craft that is toddler and tired mommy friendly. We have a 2 year old son and a 3 year old girl and they LOVED this. Plus our poor wallets loved the price too.

Easy to find supply list:
soap (any kind, but I used glycerin for a easy cut)
glue (regular old white glue will do)
some google eyes

When dealing with toddlers who can pick a fight about whose 'whatever' is whose, I went ahead and drew a O for Olivia and a C for Cody on the back. Toddlers!

Then just give your little sculptor a pen and let them draw their creature on the soap. For an older kid this could be a very cool piece of art, mine just went bananas. 

If your kids are young like mine, you'll have to do this step yourself.  Just interpret the monsters shape and cut it out. The glycerin soap was sooo easy to cut. If you have an older kid this could be done by them with a butter knife.

All cut out! The kids REFUSED to have their picture taken during this craft. Not even the bribe of marshmallows and hot cocoa could persuade them.

Glue some eyes on and get your monster play going. Being a gal who HATES wasting, I just clumped up the extra soap and used it for hand washing at the kitchen sink. Us poor badgers waste not and want not.  =)
