"There is no better childhood memory then time spent laughing together."
This week's book is full of little giggles that you are going to love! I love that this book creates a fun, and definitely not, scary monster for our munchkins to get to know. I recommend the laughter kit. Gus loves the tickle mitts and I love listening to his giggle. This week's activities are all about monsters. I hope your little monster has just as much fun as we did!
This Week's Featured Book:
Supplies for Activities:
- Flat Rocks
- Wiggly Eyes
- Apple, Peanut Butter and Mini Marshmallows
- Empty cans
Activity #1...Color Explosion Monsters
Gus loved this activity. I just put a drop of water color paint in a few different colors on a white piece of paper. I then grabbed a straw and blew. Gus giggled so hard when the paint spread. If your little one is big enough to blow through the straw it will take this activity to the next level. Gus hasn't quite grasped blowing through the straw so we chose to have him be a spectator. When its dries just slap on a couple of wiggly eyes and you have a darling monster family portrait.
Activity #2...Monster Mouth Treat
We used a couple of our favorite foods and put them together to make a fun afternoon snack. You will need an apple, peanut butter and mini marshmallows for the teeth.
Activity #3...Monster Cans
I'm sure you appreciate finding activities that help develop your child's fine motor skills as much as I do. This activity will do just that. After I decorated the can I used an X-Acto knife to cut the holes in the lid. Gus was obsessed with this pom pom eating monster, he even cried when I took it away because it was time to get ready for bed time. I love finding activities that he loves and keeps him busy!
Activity #4...Build A Monster
This free printable was a ton of fun. I first started by cutting out all the pieces/body parts. I laid them out on the table and Gus and I put together some pretty cute, googley eyed monsters. These were a couple of our favorites.
