Monster in the Mail




My Sister-in-Law runs a little preschool in her home. She is AMAZING at it, and does the cutest activities with her kids! And last week, we were right in the middle of our "Monster" -themed week when we got this cute little surprise in the mail!

Here's what you do:
  • Have your kids make a cute little monster out of any kind of paper you have. You can even glue it to a popsicle stick like the one we got.
  • Pick a family you think would enjoy your creepy creature.
  • Write a little letter to go along with the monster. Tell about how you made the monster for them and to take pictures with the monster as they do all their usual Halloween traditions: carving pumpkins, trick-or-treating, decorating, etc. Ask them to email their pictures to you so you and your kids can see all the fun the monster is having! :)
  • Then mail the letter and monster!

We’ve taken a read through your blog and we think you’ve done a fantastic job covering topics that our brand's audience would also be interested in learning about. It would be great if you could join our community to help educate, inform and converse with like minded parents.
