$7 that is all this ebook costs to download, $7 ! Let me tell you it will be $7 you won’t regret spending. This book is packed with Monster activities that you will say ” Oh why didn’t I think of that?” and ” My kid is going to love it! ” and they will. Crafts, learning activities and even fun in the kitchen is covered in the 70 page book with full color photographs, step by step instructions and realistic expectations. When the author Marie LeBaron from Make and Takes sent me a copy to review I couldn’t wait . I love her blog and one thing I have always admired about Marie besides how down to earth she is , are her realistic expectations of the kids doing the activities. I am sure this comes from being a former teacher as well as a mom, she knows what kids can do and doesn’t expect them to make crafts or eat food that is simply not kid friendly. There are crafts you can make to encourage pretend play , my favorite were hairy monster feet! There are magnets and puppets and I am craving some candy after looking at the cupcakes! Something I loved in this book was how she lays out the learning objectives for each activity, so often people don’t recognize the immense amount of tangible learning that arts and crafts offer and to see it spelled out for each of these was helpful and nice. Another awesome thing was the long list of monster books for your little ones to read, if you read No Time For Flash Cards often you know I always like to link in books so this list sealed the deal for me. Great book for kids and parents to have fun and be silly together.

I found your blog through “make & takes.” I LOVE your blog – it really is the best I’ve seen for kids’ craft ideas. I have an almost 3 year old and you’ve given me hundreds of fun ideas to do with him. Thank you!!
