Calling all friendly monsters! You and a monstrous friend are cordially invited to a musical monster bash! First, you’ll need to get dressed in your finest monster mask. Does your mask have horns, scales, fangs, or feathers? Design and build it all out of cardboard and add terrifying, terrible elements (or make them silly and playful!)

You’re invited with a guest, so you’ll have to build a fanciful monster friend that knows how to have fun. Monsters come in all shapes, sizes, colors, and textures. Use your wildest imagination to make your monster unique.

No party is complete without music. Construct your own musical instrument entirely out of cardboard! Practice making sounds and turn those sounds into music.

What else will our party need? Let’s work together to create a celebration to be remembered. Our week will culminate in a final bash that will surely fright and delight! Join us for a musical menagerie of sounds.
