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 eBay here:

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:

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:


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 on eBay:
