Monster Stompers Activities, Games, Crafts Food & FREEBIE!



I do not know what the attraction is but children LOVE monsters. When I was a child the "Big Daddy Roth" monsters were a SMASH hit! Why even "The Beav" had to have one of those monsters! 


If you want to see what happens in this episode, you can purchase it from Amazon  here:

I always wanted to be a mother like June Cleaver but have always found myself fallen short....sigh...things sure are not like they used to be that is for sure...
If you are into Big Daddy Roth, here is a site featuring a good amount of merchandise:

Pintrest also has a Big Daddy Roth Monster board:


So of course my babes want to get into the monster act! We watched The 3 Monsters on our Show N Tell:

We made some Frankie shoes from kleenex boxes after we read our book:




We did some "M is for Monster" printing:







Next, we played some Monster Games. We did Monster Roll N Graph from the 3 Dinosaurs Monster Pack:

Monster Pack Printables from 3 Dinosaurs











For our next monster game, we made a monster out of a box placing his mouth low to the ground for ease and fed him (plastic) apples...the pictures are a bit blurry but you can get the idea:






 SCORE!!!


We made some Monster faces from various materials and styrofoam meat trays:





Turned out pretty good, eh?

 We also made Monster Ghouls from paper bags and face parts cut out from magazines:








Then we made Monster Stompers. These stompers lasted for years! Made from large coffee cans & foam sheets, each child chose the monster they wanted. Sierra chose Monster Toes while Julian chose Frankie:


 
My babes went stomping here, stomping there, they went stomping everywhere. Up and down, all around they stomped on the ground. Where their monster's would take them, I did not know but they were most certainly on the go. And when their stomping feet did stop, down they sat with a plop!




If you would like to make these Monster stompers, you can get some foam sheets from Amazon:

5 1/2" X 8 1/2"            12" X 18"
