Monster Mash!

The Monster Mash, Do the monster mash.....

What a great time we had yesterday at Sunshine's Monster Mash birthday party! Boy am I wiped out from monster foaming, dancing, entertaining, etc.- but so glad that I did. Most of my decorations were made from my craft stash and recyclables. I found great monster clip art online for just 75 cents that was great for the invites and decorations. Enjoy the tour of the party, but beware of the monsters!


COSTUMES

Sunshine was a werewolf. Quite a few draculas attended, as well as a Freddy Kruger(yeesh)-luckily the kids didn't know who he is- which means they never saw the film. There was also a frankenstein, a few skeletons, and some witches in attendance. Even little man dressed up!


This is the T-shirt that I painted for Little Man. He wore a little head band with eyeballs on it- so cute.





DECORATIONS




FOOD-YUMMY!
I served witches brew with gummy bugs, cheese fingers and monster eyeballs. For dessert, we had cyclops cupcakes and a 3 eyed monster cake.






ACTIVITIES
The kids created monster balloons, played hot potato with monster music, and pin the eyeball on the monster. They were able to feel ogre brains, eyeballs, guts, and fingers. The monster foaming experiment was a big hit and messy! It got a bit rowdy with monster dancing, too.


Balloon monsters: balloons, eyeballs, glue, and craft foam




Pin the eyeball- print out lg. monster, make eyeballs with paper and google eyes
