Leave a door open, and one can walk right into this factory; right into the monster world. – Waternoose

Disney/Pixar’s Monsters, Inc. has to be one of the most clever movies ever made.  The very idea of monsters living in their own world and coming through the closet to scare kids as their job…who comes up with that?  I know that it has helped my kids to not be afraid of the idea of monsters in their room.

We did this little monster activity for Halloween, but you could do it as a preschool activity.  It teaches kids shapes and fine motor skills.

They asked to make more monsters the next day.  It always makes me feel good when an activity is so well liked.
