Since I started creating resources for kids and sharing them with fellow educators and caregivers, the most heartwarming aspect has been hearing about the joy these activities bring to children. It's incredibly rewarding to see my mission in action. 😊 With Halloween just around the corner, I couldn't resist sharing this delightful activity: Monster Pie.
Recently, a teacher shared some kind feedback about the October Creative Play Bundle, mentioning that Monster Pie was a big hit with her preschoolers. This little story involves a mischievous monster making a monster pie, with a singable part where kids get to add yucky ingredients. It's a real crowd-pleaser, captivating their attention and sparking smiles and laughter.
Here's the full story for you to try with your little ones this Halloween. It's an activity that sparks imagination – just grab an empty pie plate and let the children take turns coming up with yucky or silly things to add to the pie. If you're interested in interactive visuals and story sheets, you can find them here.

What shall I add?
What shall I try?

For my slimy monster pie”
(repeat this section for each ingredient you add to the pie)
I spy a monster opening wide
He gobbles up the pie
And off he goes
With a happy sigh!
