Take a look at these personalized Monster Party invitations:
- Use faux fur as a tablecover. Find it at your local fabric store. Black works fine, if you put another color, longer length cloth under it and just add a topper out the faux fur…but any funky colored faux fur would look great, too.
- Place large googly eyes on the tablecloth.
- Furry Monster Wreath – Cover a foam wreath shape with blue or green faux fur. Then hot glue googly eyes in different sizes (using only the largest 2-3 sizes) onto the wreath. Hang it on your front door to welcome guests. Attach a note across the middle that says “Warning, monsters inside!”
- Monster Books for Kids can be used as decorations: Where the Wild Things Are, Tickle Monster, There’s a Monster Under My Bed, The Monster at the End of This Book, and When a Monster is Born.
- Make a few monster heads from empty plastic milk jugs using these directions.
- Draw monster footprints leading to your door in sidewalk chalk (or cut outs from construction paper).
- Monster Hands – Stuff clear plastic gloves with kleenex tissues and tie them closed with black ribbon. Decorate by drawing a scar across the back of each hand with green craft paint, add fake fingernails and a spider ring. Place the monster hands on the edge of food platters.
- Tie a balloon to the back of each chair, and tie a group of five balloons to the birthday child’s chair.
- Monster t-shirts – Before the party, draw just the outline of monster heads onto plain colored t-shirts. Include multiple eyes on some, big horns, and large jagged teeth on others. On party day, provide fabric markers and let each guest color in their own monster head. They can wear the shirt during the party and take it home as a favor. Hey, an activity that doubles as a favor– I love them!
- Pin the Eye on the Monster
- Monster Bowling – Decorate empty plastic 2-litre soda bottles to look like monsters. Add a cup of dry beans in the bottom to keep them stable. At the party, use a small ball and let the kids bowl to see how many they can knock over. Kids of all ages love this game.
- Mummy Wrapping Game – Divide the children into teams and give each team two rolls of toilet paper. Set a timer for about ten minutes and let the teams each wrap one member as a mummy. When everyone is finished, let the mummies parade around the room so everyone can see them, and then let the kids vote for the best mummy or have adult judges decide on the winning team
- Monster Eyeball Race – Before the party, draw eyeballs and bloodshot veins on white ping pong balls using permanent marker. Divide the guests into two teams and have them race while holding the eyeball in a spoon. If they drop the eyeball, they must stop and pick it back up. They should pass the eyeball onto the spoon of the next player, and that person runs next. For older kids, let them hold the spoon in their mouth as they race to make it more challenging.
- Monster Egg Hunt – Fill green plastic eggs with candy, stickers or other small items, and hide them in the yard. Tell the kids that Godzilla the monster has lost her eggs and then send them out to find them.
- Coloring Pages – Check out this free monster coloring page. Just print out enough copies for your guests, and provide crayons and markers.
