Cupcake Matching

Happy Tuesday!  Here's one of our birthday-tivities - a cupcake matching game :)  It was so simple to make and so adapatable to ANY theme - just buy different wrapping/scrapbook paper to change the theme - easy peasy!

2 small foam sheets
cupcake wrapping paper
glue stick

  1. Cut out individual cupcakes/images - we used 6 different images, but this could easily be expanded to increase the level of difficulty
  2. Cut the same number of squares from your foam sheets (you could also use card stock)
  3. Glue the images onto the foam squares

Happy Tuesday!  Today we made a paper roll monster.  Munchkin got to work on his scissor skills and got to use glitter glue - he was in heaven :)  Here's what we used:
  • TP Roll
  • Black marker for the hair and scar
  • Green markers and green glitter glue for the body
  • Gems or googly eyes for the eyes
  • Scissors to cut the hair with

Growlie Monsters!

Happy Monday!  Only a few more weeks until Halloween!  Lately, Stinkerpotamus has been into playing monster.  He chases me around and growls and I scream...then we switch.  So this week's theme is (you guessed it), Monsters!  Oh, and I should mention that actual monsters seriously scare Munchkin, so these monsters are going to be of the friendly variety :)
