I signed up to make a game for my daughter's Halloween party last year. I thought I could think of something easy for a bunch of 3-4 year olds to do. Boy was I wrong. There were a bunch of games on Pinterest but none that I thought would hold their interest or they would get. I talked to my friend, Alicia who is an awesome early education teacher and she gave me the idea for a pin the something on the something..witch....pumpkin...etc.
I thought...I can do this. I started doodling and came up with this cute monster guy. I though he looked cute but still kinda scary. I went to the store and bought two colored poster boards and some thick colored computer paper.
I used one of those ear band/warmer things as the blindfold since I couldn't find another piece of fabric big enough to tie around their eyes. I also used sticky photo squares that you would use for scrap booking as the kids came up to have their turn so I didn't have to worry about tape. I traced one of the eyeballs so we had a "home base" or center that they were trying to hit.
The kids loved being spun around and seeing where their eyeball landed. I also wrote their names on their paper eyeballs so their parents could see where each eyeball was. Not too bad for $5 and 2 hours.

I can't wait to see what your monsters look like! Make them cute but scary!
