I’ve seen a variety of monster themes circulating lately. Regardless of what monster theme your little one (or you) like, there’s a cheap and easy way to decorate for the celebration. Besides your typical supplies, pick up some blank paper, plastic eyes, a foam ball and extra candy – some of these ideas even decorate themselves ( it’s a kid’s activity, but at least you don;t have to do the work)! Make sure to bookmark this post for later, many of the ideas can be re-used at Halloween and for other themes.
First glance at this Cheeto Monster and I knew my theme for the day. I was tempted to change my Little One’s birthday party just so I could make it. This project is what the foam ball is for (any shape will work, though). Attach your snack with toothpicks – super easy!
Fun ways to dress up the party snacks!
Here’s where the kids come in handy. Bust out the paper, eyes, glue, scissors (or pre-cut shapes), left over Easter eggs and miscellaneous craft supplies. These serve as both activities AND party favors!
More activities! Pin-the-Eye-on-the-Monster, Make-Your-Own-Monster and Color-in-the-Monster. Super easy!
Fun things to do with eyeballs. Practically anything can be turned into a monster (or ghost) – use your imagination!
A party isn’t complete without a photo booth! Turn yourself into a monster with a decorated box! If you don’t have a box on hand, poster board or cloth works just as well.
