Welcome! I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a lovely retired greyhound, and a wife to a great husband. Needless to say, there are a lot of daily messes to clean up around our house. Daily Messes is my blog to share ideas on things to do with your kids, snack and meal ideas, crafts, and holiday fun. I hope you find something to enjoy!

Ahhh! Monsters In The Bath!

My kids love bath time, but I don't want to buy any more huge bath toys. These monsters are the perfect way for them to have endless fun in the tub without taking up a lot of room.

You will need:
  • Foam craft sheets
  • Scissors

1. Cut out shapes. It doesn't really matter if they are perfect! I cut large ovals for bodies, a few arms/legs with 3 fingers/toes, a few small round shapes (for eyes, dots, etc.), triangles (scales, horns, etc.), medium shaped circles or ovals for heads, and a few crescent shapes for mouths. 
2. Lightly moisten the back of the shapes and press firmly on the bath tub wall or on the tile walls.

The boys created a lot of different monsters, including brother monsters! :)

If the kids are driving you crazy on a cold or rainy day and you don't care about them getting wet, these are a fun way to keep them busy. Just leave the water on a trickle and they can stand or sit on the edge of the tub and make their monsters!


  1. These are so adorable!!! What a great idea! I am going to have to try these, maybe for Halloween. I wonder if they will stick to the windows???

  2. Thanks! I just tested it on the kitchen windows, and they seem to be sticking :)


I love to hear from you! I promise I read every comment, but I don't always remember to respond to each one.
