DIY GLOVE MONSTER DECORATIONS

Material:

1. Car cleaning glove

2. Round eyeballs or small round Styrofoam balls

3. White pipe cleaners

4. Glue gun

5. Stuffing for glove (cotton, old rags ripped up, paper towel, etc)

6. Black felt or paint for eyeballs

I went to my local dollar store and found the car gloves for very cheap there, along with the other supplies

First I took the glove and stuffed it with old rags until it was nice and plump, and folded in the elastic part of the glove that fits around your wrist and sealed it with glue

Secondly I did three different versions of the eyeballs, the monsters either had one, two or three eyeballs.  The monsters with three eyeballs I just glued the eyeballs right to the glove. The monsters with one or two eyeballs I first glued onto the end of a pipe cleaner which I then glued to the glove.  I found since the eye balls were heavy for the pipe cleaners, it was best to first create a closed circle the same size as the eyeball at the end of the pipe cleaner and put a thin layer of glue all around the circle and fit the circle onto the eyeball.

I folded the pipe cleaner in half for the monsters who had two eyeballs and on either end of the cleaners I created the closed circle.  I glued the middle of the pipe cleaner to the glove.  With the monsters who only had one eyeball, I simply repeated the same step I did with creating the circle at the end of the pipe cleaner and glued the eyeball to the circular part. To make the eyeball more sturdy I wrapped the straight part of the pipe cleaner around my finger to make it all curly and then glued the end part to the glove!

PARENTING 4 YEAR OLD TWIN BOYS

Is it just me or do little boys seem to get more energetic and crazy the older they get...I thought with my twin boys the golden age would be around 4 when they would chill out a bit and make life a bit easier on this mama...but no life seems to get crazier with them, waking up earler then they ever have, constantly engaging in dangerous activities and wow that energy is insane. But as I write this at 10pm at night when the house is quiet and the little ones are fast asleep I know I wouldn't want to change a thing and can definitely say they keep me on my feet and laughing everyday...Yes little boys and girls are a lot of work and twin boys are 10 times the amount, but I feel so lucky and blessed that I was chosen to be the mom of two amazing, funny, loving and smart twin boys...They are fighters, showing us from the very beginning that they were strong, determined and full of spunk and I know that I'm going to miss all their spunk terribly when they start kindergarten in September.

 

What age have you found the most tiring with your kiddies?
