TP Roll Monsters printable and tutorial

October makes me think of monsters a lot, but I don't think that they're really something that has to be specific to Halloween as long as they're not all Frankenstein-y but more generic regular-monster-like.  Like this: And now, let me tell you how you can make your very own TP Roll Monster with your kids. First, you need to go to the bathroom.  And wipe yourself.  And blow your nose.  Then repeat.  Until you have a naked TP Roll.  Or 6. Then you need to download the monster parts.   And then you need to print them.  I suggest printing...

Candy Corn Pizza Snack

'Tis the season of Candy Corn, but you don't always have to eat it in the actual candy form.  These are super duper easy to make, plus they're cheesy and cheesy always equals YUM.  To make Candy Corn Pizza take a premade pizza crust and slice it into triangles.

Cheese Pencil Snacks

These are great for school snacks or to stick in your kid's lunchbox.  And they're really super easy to make. For one "pencil" you'll need a cheese stick, half a raisin, a Bugle, a slice of bologna and a toothpick.
