Yep, I’m running late on the Cabin Fever post. It’s a Friday thing, but if your Friday was anything like mine, you didn’t need an indoor activity. Holy moly, I think it must have something to do with my birthday because the weather has been phenomenally good for Michigan. Beautiful trees and warm sun…it’s like heaven out there.
OK, enough of my weather talk, but really….no, I’ll stop. Haha!
Here’s another cute idea for your rainy day bag of tricks – Shape Monsters! My 3 AND 7 year old love to make these. Maybe this will tell you how much – Our entire upstairs is theirs and they have the walls completely decorated with their many creations for Halloween.
Here’s what you’ll need:
9×12 Construction Paper
Magic Marker (for pupils)
My notes: You’ll want to cut enough pieces to assemble several monsters. Most children, even small children who are familiar with Mr. Potato Head (or something similar), can do this with little difficulty. I keep STACKS with the various body parts stored together in a craft box for fidgety moments. They’re super cheap to make and completely frustration free for everyone! I’m assuming self explanatory too!
