M is for Monster

Today the lovely Donna from Mom of 4 is here sharing some monster activities!

We haven't had Mom School at our house since the beginning of summer when we did O is for Octopus and the kid's have been asking to have it again (can't say that doesn't make me happy!) Part of the reason is that I tend to go overboard and create a bunch of work for myself so I kept things simple this time.

We read The Monster at the End of this Book. Does anyone else remember this from your childhood?
Grover tries several tactics to stop the reader from getting to the end of the book where the monster is. Of course, he IS the monster at the end of the book.

My kids loved it. They were asking fighting over who got to turn the page. They were also laughing and asked to read it again once it was over.

We made Monster M's. I just set out some paint, crepe paper, and googly eyes.

Bryce and Ellie made mummy monsters:


Cole wasn't really interested in doing this so I covered his in green crepe paper and he added the eyes:

My kids love mazes so I printed them some M's.

No pictures of this (I'm sure you've all seen cookies kids covered in frosting before), but we made monster cookies. I just gave them each a sugar cookie with different sprinkles and frosting and told them to make monsters out of them. They obviously loved this part.

It doesn't have anything to do with monsters, but we threw in a science project and made iridescent ice.

And by this time, they were done, but I sweet talked my 7 year old into lending me his hand so  he could make these cute handprint monsters.

And by that time, I was done and sent them outside to give me a break enjoy the freshly fallen snow.
Pin It!

  2. Michelle,
    My kids didn't really get it when they were younger either! I'm glad I pulled it out and tried it again, though.

  5. One of my favourite books. Check it out on YouTube.( I like to read it first so the children know I can use the 'voice' )
