One eyed, one horned flying purple people eater

Maisy has been singing this song almost nonstop for the past couple of weeks, but I hadn't thought to actually make one until I saw Toddler Approved do theirs {by the way, you need to check out that blog if you haven't already - amazing}. I pulled out some supplies {purple cardstock, colored craft sticks, circle punches, googly eyes, bingo markers, and glue} and set them on the counter for the night so we'd be ready to go in the morning. Little did I know that the girls would self start on this first thing in the morning without direction from me. This is where I walked in.



Maisy and Lou had already drawn out their monsters and glued on eyes and a craft stick horn {cut up with scissors}.  They were all ready to start decorating their people eaters.  Maisy went for the red bingo dot marker and Lou started punching out orange circles and adding them as hair to her monster.


Mina came to join the fun and immediately got a hold of one of the bingo markers and started gluing on a bunch of eyes.


Mina was more interested in cutting.  She snipped and snipped away.  She still holds her hand the wrong way when she cuts, but her fingers are in the right place and she has got the motion down - she does love her scissors.


Maisy liked to glue scraps of leftover paper onto her page.  She was making Lou pretty mad because she seemed to be taking up all the "good" scraps.

Here's how they turned out:

Maisy's interpretation - I know she had been envisioning this for quite some time.

Mina's cute little creature - love it!
