Fall is the season of leaves, pumpkins, turkeys, and… monsters?
While we don’t do the whole scary Halloween thing, we do embrace the cute monsters so no-fuss monster crafts for kids are always a treat

My girls would just as soon make a monster-themed craft as something pumpkin or apple-themed in the fall.
We also love monsters year-round, and you might just find us making something monster-themed in the summer or spring, too. Just don’t tell the seasonal police!
