Halloween is not traditionally celebrated here in Australia, but over the last few years it has become more and more popular. The shops are filling up with costumes, and decorations, and Halloween lollies (candy), and my four year old has begun to notice and ask questions.
A few years ago Noah was scared of anything that was even remotely like a monster. We made these cute monster puppets to help cope with his fears and build a more friendly idea of a ‘monster’ in his mind. These days he loves monsters and ‘scary’ (but not too scary) things and is loving all the zombies and Halloween monsters that are beginning to pop up in the shops.
To build on his current monster interest I made him some monster drawing prompts.
I had to laugh as he told me all about the ‘Yoga’ he was drawing.
“Yogas are green and they have warts on their noses and are really, really, mean monsters who eat all the other monsters.”
It will be a sad day when he realises the word is ‘Ogre’ not ‘Yoga’.
