He's squishy, he's green, and he watches you everywhere you go. Meet Mike Wasowski's creepier cousin!
A snack-sized ziplock bag, some light corn syrup, green food coloring, and googly eyes are all you need to create a oozing creature of your own.
Pictures don't adequately capture how unnerving it is to have all those eyes shift at you while you squish this little guy.
I don't take chances when it comes to corn syrup. He's packing-taped shut and double bagged to protect against escape!
My Monster Mama Loves Me So by Laura Leuck
I Love My Pirate Papa? Leuck has another book, this time with a Monster Mama! The illustrations are just as adorable as the pirate version and contain the same charming rhymes. The monster baby in the story tells us all the wonderful things his monster mama does for him, like comb the cobwebs out of his hair and protect him from the "scary things" (a.k.a. kids!).
Pirate Papa was A's favorite of the pirate books we brought home, and she's already taken to carrying this one around the house... and the yard. You can't ask for a better endorsement!
