Halloween is approaching and to celebrate the season I decided to create a fun family oriented activity. So I created a Monster and Muffin party for the apartment complex I live in. The party consisted of a nature walk, monster building using items found in nature, and muffin consumption!
As we waited for everyone to show up we drew monsters on the sidewalk.
I made bags for each participant so that they could collect their monster parts along the way (sticks, rocks, leaves...). The kids as well as the adults really got into this! Every time someone found an item they would get super excited and using their imagination would exclaim, "hey look I found a monster tongue, or monster arms..." Side note- before the event I drew monster foot prints along the path we would be taking to add to the thrill :).
At the end of our nature walk we built our monsters using craft glue and toothpicks. Here are a just a few monster creations. I decided to get googly eyes in case there were a lot of younger children.
To end the day we ate MUFFINS! I bought an assortment of monstrous sized muffins to munch. Everyone loved them! What's not to like about sugar?
