Throwing a kids birthday party is hard work. Every Mom dreads when their child turns a year older but luckily they don’t get to think about it too much before hand (ya know, to cry and wallow in their tears!) because they are too busy planning and stressing over all the small details of the party; like what to serve, activities to play, food to eat, and of course what amazing gift to give. Both of my kids are loving silly monsters lately and so I knew that a silly monster themed party would be a perfect idea for either a boy or a girl.
I’m making the party super easy for everyone today. I have planned out an entire silly monster themed party and I’m giving all of the activity ideas, decor printables, and games to play. All coming from items around your house or items that you can print for free!
This pin the eyes on the monster is perfect for kids of all ages. Start by having each child write their name on the back of their silly eyes. I used a thick headwrap for the blindfold (no tying required!) and just put tape on the back of each cut out silly eyes. Then spin the kids around and point them in the right direction. Some didn’t even make it onto the poster, and others got it right where they should be. But the best part is that no matter where they end up, the monster looks fun!
The Monster prints as a 16×20 poster. You can get this printed at Costco, Walgreens, Kinkos and more. And the eyes come 3 to a page on a 8.5×11 regular sheet of paper. I would recommend printing it on cardstock as the kids will most likely want to play multiple times and they aren’t the kindest to regular paper!
And of course I’m not leaving you hanging with just the party activity, I am giving a ton of other ideas from paper bag monsters and toilet paper roll monsters over on my site. But I have also got a full party printable pack on my site as well that all go along with the pin the eyes on the monster.
Everything from cupcake toppers, drink flags, treat signs/treat bag toppers and even printable signs. Put everything together and you have an AMAZING kids party that the whole neighborhood would be more than happy to be invited to.
