Little Monsters Party


Monster Party

Budget $100
Guests: 12


Invitations were done by the amazing Emily of Tiny Kiwi

For the decorations we chose bright colours and put crepe streamers up around the house. Then we made tissue paper pom pom monsters.





The table and other areas of the house were decorated with paper toy monsters which we made from this book.  I can highly recommend this book for a gift or party decorations, it was high quality and easy to use.
We had a monster mask craft activity then some traditional party games.


Food was pizzas and jellies, corn chips, monster marshmallows, and chocolates.





The Fruit Monster was a big hit and only took 5 minutes to make.


Ben drew a picture of the cake he wanted and Dad made him one just like it.


I wanted to make something for the kids to take home so I sewed these little felt monster softies. They're made from felt scraps and stuffed.


Each monster was designed and named by our son Ben. He drew me a picture of what he wanted and I sewed them up.


We gave them to each child wrapped up in brown paper at the end of the party. The older siblings of the guests got monster craft kits so they could make their own monsters at home. One of the craft kits was taken from Build your own Monsters and the other kit was a wooden face on a stick with some stick on eyes, feathers, felt scraps, and pipe cleaners.


Along with each gift they got a goodie bag with a cookie that I iced to look like an eye, some bubble mix, a monster badge, and some monster stickers.

The goodie bags are from Paper Eskimo and the badges are from Etsy seller Vozamer.
