Lots of kids go through a phase where they start to “see” monsters everywhere, especially at night when they are alone in their rooms.
Having them create their own monsters may be a great way to desensitize them.
But even if your kids aren’t afraid of monsters, engaging in these monster crafts and activities is a fun way to prepare for Halloween!
