I am class mom this year for Drake’s Pre-K class. Our first party is coming up this week, a Halloween party, and I have been preparing to make it fun and entertaining for the kids. In the few weeks leading up to this party, I have been glued to Pinterest looking for ideas and decided I wanted to try to make a monster toss game similar to this one. Because I would need to be able to carry this in and out of Drake’s school by myself, I decided to only use one piece of wood for weight.

These are the materials I used:

  • 1 sheet of plywood
  • Paints (water based from Michaels)
  • Paintbrush
  • Pencil
  • Jigsaw

I drew out the monster outline and Mr. Chocolate cut out the mouth for me over the weekend  Then I sat outside and painted (with a little help from my little monsters).  It was quick and easy and took us only a matter of hours to complete.


I had seen this adorable guy in my Halloween searches, I knew I had to make him. I figured I would find some way to incorporate him into the party and when I decided on the monster toss, I knew he would be perfect.


  • Craft Fur
  • White thread
  • Needle
  • Stuffing
  • Eyes
  • Glue
  • Felt

I followed the instructions on the site cutting out a shape in the fur and felt. Next I sewed all the pieces together, stuffing him slowly as I went. It’s very forgiving since the thread blends in and the fur hides a lot. Be warned the fur does shed a bit so you will be covered in some fur when the process is done. Last I used my hot glue gun to glue on two eyes. I was able to finish making him in one hour while watching Survivor. I am contemplating making a few more for the toss now.

A monster ate me

Drake and Juliet found the set up fun to play with, and now we have a fun monster game to keep the Halloween spirit alive long after the holiday has passed!
