“It Looks Like a Purple People Eater to Me” Movie Mask Craft

  • In the movie, Purple’s wings look like butterfly wings. I found a printable template on FreeKidsCrafts.com and printed them out. Using a glue stick, I glued them to to the purple construction paper and used the purple sharpie to trace the lines. Then cut the wings out leaving the purple paper outline.
  • For the horn… My friend recently threw a unicorn-themed birthday party for her 1-year-old daughter. They had pastel unicorn horns to use for photo props. Since I had that on hand, I used it to trace a horn that looked like his. Then cut it out.
  • I took the yarn and measured around his head, how long we wanted it, then cut several strands the same length.
  • I have some foam shapes for crafting, my mom had given us. I cut the foam into his eye shape and hot glued the googly eye onto it.
  • I took the purple pipe cleaner and measured how big we wanted his mouth and snipped off the end. I then bent it into shape and hot glued the cut ends onto the ends of the bigger pipe cleaner.
  • Then I carefully glued it all together onto the plate. Starting with the mouth, then his eye, the hair layer by layer. Then I glued on his horn, wings and the craft stick to hold up the mask.

One-Eyed, One-Horned Flying Purple People Eater Lyrics

Well I saw the thing coming out of the sky
It had one long horn and one big eye
I commenced to shakin’ and I said oo-wee
It looks like a purple people eater to me
It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
Sure looks good to me

Well, he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said Mr Purple People Eater don’t eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
I wouldn’t eat you ‘cos you’re too tough
It was a one-eyed one-horned flying purple people eater
It sure looks strange to me

I said Mr Purple People Eater what’s your line
He said eating purple people and it sure is fine
But that’s not the reason that I came to land
I wanna get a job in a rock ‘n roll band
Well, bless my soul rock ‘n roll flying’ purple people eater
Pigeon-toed under-growed flyin’ purple people eater
One-eyed one-horned it was a people eater
What a sight to see! 

Well, he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock really rockin’ around
It was a crazy ditty with a swinging tune
Wop bop a lula wop bam boom
One-eyes one-horned flying people eater
Ooh, it sure looks strange to me! 

Well he went on his way and then what do you know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was a blowin’ it out and really knockin’ them dead
Playing rock ‘n roll music through the horn in his head!
