Eek! Monsters!

I LOVE Halloween!  I don't know if I have always felt this way or just since I have had kids, but I do know that I think all of it is so much fun!  As soon as I saw October 1st on the calendar I got my house in order!

Another part of Halloween that I enjoy so much is #AllThingsMonsters.  I think monster books and crafts are SO cute!  So when a 5th grade teacher from my former school asked me to create a Monster bulletin board for her, I might have gotten a little giddy!
AHHH! Aren't they precious!  I seriously couldn't love this board more.  

So here are the details:
I used my Cricut to make the top two lines of letters.  I big puffy heart love my Cricut.  The "Monsters" letters are from  

Do you know how I made this cutie??? It takes ZERO skill.  I just crumbled up tissue paper and stapled it to the board.  Seriously- easiest thing ever.  Then I hot-glued the mega googly eye and mouth that I just quickly cut out of black paper.  The feet are from an Educlips monster that I just printed extra large. 

Book covers you ask?  I just google searched images for books that I know the 5th graders are into right now.  I also might have snuck some of my favorites in to encourage them to try something new!

 If you LOVE Monsters as much as I do there are a couple of things you need to do!
