boy's monster birthday party: googly eye crafts

googly eye crafts for little boy's monster birthday party

When Hilary and I couldn't find any monster themed party supplies we liked for our boy's joint birthday party, we decided that we could easily make our own. In addition to our tissue paper poofs and the monster cupcakes, we needed some more monster decor. They key ingredient: googly eyes! Cheap, $2.49 for a bag of various sizes, and we made some really adorable crafts!

Our two favorites and the biggest crowd pleasers were these two:



1. The monster cups for our monster punch (equal party pineapple juice, 7-up and rainbow sherbert. So easy!)

2. And the monster bath toys

They were so simple and quick to make! The tutorial for the cups is as follows:

take cups and googly eyes


Glue eyes onto the cup with a hot glue gun. And, you know, hot glue.

Insert straws and/or utensils. For the utensils I added some silly mouths, and they were adorable!

 The second googly eyed craft was making these little fellows:

They were possibly the easiest, cheapest birthday present I've even made! The only materials were a dollar store microfiber car washing sponge, and googly eyes. I happened to find some microfiber sponges at the dollar store in the perfect colors for our party, and when I gave one to my Dude in the shopping cart he couldn't get enough of it! An idea for these monsters was born.

I glued the googly eyes right to the sponge itself.

And this is the result! My Dude can't stop playing with it, he loves the texture of the microfiber "fur."

The best part? It can go in the bath or outside! Anything that encourages bath time play is good in my book.

And now his new rubber monster ducky has a buddy too!

  7. Cookie Monster party ideas are great for that very special First birthday party or for your Toddler's party. What child doesn't love The Cookie Monster, that great big blue furry monster from Sesame Street?Monster party
