To round out the week we made smashed monsters. I love these little guys. Start by folding a piece of construction paper. Open the paper and add a dollop of paint at the fold (we used tempera paint). Then fold the paper back and squish the paint. Now reopen and look at your “monster”. Feel free to make additions. Does your monster have googly eyes, pom poms, feathers, the sky is the limit.
While our monsters were drying we moved on to making Remembrance Cookies for our Samhain alter. I love how they turned out, the rest of my family wasn’t thrilled with the Rosemary flavor. http://yeoldewitchesbrewmagazine.presspublisher.us/issue/samhain-2009/article/soul-cakes-and-other-traditional-samhain-recipes
