Silly Monster Party
How to have a silly monster theme birthday party
Calling all the monsters! Hey, Mom-ster, if your little monster is having a birthday
and you're planning a party, then try an outrageously cute and unforgettable silly
little monster party filled with google eyes, horned creatures, crazy monster teeth
and rolled tongues. Here's how:

for your silly monster cupcakes and cake pops, but also for edible crafts. Try
"gluing" them to mugs and glasses with dabs of frosting.
- Monster feet! Make your own monster feet from tin cans or buy the cute
ready made monster feet, lower right. Under $10 and with free shipping, this
is a monstrously fun activity for the kiddos. Or start saving tissue boxes and
get creative: two tissue boxes and some acrylic paints will make terrific
monster slippers. Either way, kids will have a fun time stomping around or
- Monster party plates: Serving monster mash is sure to be a smash with the
melamine monster plates, pictured top left. They're heat resistant,
dishwasher safe, and will help you keep memories long after the party is
over. Or clean them up and send kids home with a plate full of monster
cookies as a favor.

invent your own once you get a hang of this sweet idea.

off the creepy creations for cupcakes using Wilton's cupcake monster recipes
