How to make your own magnets for your little monster

What you will need:
Wooden shapes (mine are from Bunnings)
Plastic large/oversized buttons (mine are from a local $2 shop)
Hot glue gun
Paint (I used acrylic)

1. Paint your wooden shapes the desired colours and wait for them to dry
2. Glue magnets on to the back of the plastic buttons and painted wooden shapes
3. Ensure the glue has fully dried before you give them to your child for use.

Make sure you supervise your child when using the magnets, to stop them from putting them in their mouths (as if the magnet comes off the back of the buttons or shapes it may be a choking hazard).

Monsters and Valentines Day

Happy valentines day to you all!

Our 700 Liker competition is well underway and the pictures coming in are so fabulous...well done kiddies :)

I wanted to see if I could spark your little ones imagination with these 2 inspirational ideas that show you all that monsters are wonderful and can shower you with love on this special day too :)

This 1st one is my favourite...I would love it if I received one of these (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, hubby darling).

I Love You, Little Monster, Peek a Boo Card,  Eye Heart You Peek a Boo Card, Monster Inside

This gorgeous card has been created by Charlene and can be found for purchase (along with many other beautiful monster + love designs) at

This 2nd one is perfect for the kiddies to try (if you follow the link below, it will take you to a great tutorial).

These would make great valentine mail boxes for the kids...or they could just be used to store secret messages inside :)
They have been created by Mariah, (the creative mind behind Giggles Galore) and the tutorial to make them can be found here: 

That's all from me for today :)
Remember to keep those kiddies drawing and send them in...happy valentines day to you all!
