Monster Eyes Pretzel Bites

By  | Last Updated:  

Need a fun idea for a birthday party? Kids are thrilled with a silly monster birthday party theme. The monsters are colorful, imaginative and not scary at all. A kid could easily conquer them. Moms enjoy the silly monster theme, too. The monsters are colorful, imaginative, and the decorations are not scary at all because there’s not just one way to make a monster. Anything goes. Just add google eyes and a few fun treats on the dessert table—like Monster Eyes Pretzel Bites—and you’re good to go. These treats would be great for a Halloween party, too.

Were you afraid of monsters in the dark when you were young? When I was little, I was afraid to let my feet stick out under the covers when I went to bed. It just seemed like Something was under the bed at night. It wasn’t logical. If Something were there…how would those flimsy covers protect me? Funny kid thinking. I spent a lot of hot, summer nights covered up for no reason!

Must be lots of kids think Something is lurking under the bed, or in the closet. Why else would a movie about silly monsters become wildly successful? And why would kids so enjoy a party with a silly monster theme?

Ha-ha Silly Monster. I could eat you up.
