Mathstart Monster Musical Chairs Activity
The monsters were really easy to make using pom-poms, googly-eyes, and craft foam. I tried to match the monsters to the ones in the book, and they came out really cute. I also made chairs for them out of little paper cups, a paper towel roll, and more craft foam.
The girls eyes lit up when they woke up from their naps and discovered these little monsters. As we read the story, we talked about how many monsters and chairs were left. Then we played a bit of musical chairs as well so they'd understand the concept of the game.
After reading the story a couple times, E asked for her dollhouse furniture and everyone sat down for dinner:
The girls are starting to treat their toys a bit more delicately and I'm proud to say that all six monsters remained intact after a full evening of play.
