Zombie Chase

Thanks to PlayMonster and Tryazon for the awesome game! My kids (ranging from teen to preschooler) all love this game!

Zombie Chase by PlayMonster is so much fun for everyone.

I love how easy it is for the preschooler – he likes to get turned into a zombie as soon as possible and then chase everyone else around the board!

While my older kids are focused on collecting all the items necessary to escape and win the game while not being turned into a zombie.

We had some game time with friends as well and I had to make sure every mom knew exactly what the game was called and where to get it, because it’s now on several kid’s Christmas Gift lists!

They also sent me a game called Reign by PlayMonster. It reminds me a lot of Risk, but it’s way way faster (as in you complete an entire game in 30 to 60 minutes). My 8yr old son loves it and has been bringing it places when he knows he’ll have friends to play with. It really is the perfect game for elementary and middle school aged kids!

Monster Pretzels


These are so easy to make. And so fun to make! My girls helped me with these and they opted not to put any of the halloween sprinkles on, but insisted on using hearts instead!

Any way you do it, have fun! They taste great too, so make a bunch, because if you don’t you’ll wish you had.

Pretzel Monsters

  • Bag (or two) of Chocolate covered pretzels – I just buy the cheapest chocolate covered pretzels I can find at the grocery store
  • Candy making chocolate in various colors – green and orange are great monster colors!
  • Assorted sprinkles

Spread parchment paper out on 2 cookie sheets.

Spread pretzels out on sheets in a single layer.

Melt the candy chocolate in a ziploc bag in the microwave. Microwave 15 to 30 seconds, mix and repeat until chocolate is smooth.

Cut a small hole in the corner of the bag and pipe into the top two sections of the pretzel. Immediately, add a large sprinkles for the eyes. (this is a great part for the kids, you pipe, and they stick on the sprinkles)

Let cool, remove from the tray, and enjoy.

I like to just set out a bowl of these on the counter when guests come over. They’re fun and so tasty!


Monster Cupcakes

I decided to do something fun and easy with the kids for Halloween. They had so much fun making these monster cupcakes, and even more fun eating them!

For something fun and different, I made ice cream cone cupcakes. It’s super easy. Just mix up any cake mix following the package directions and fill your ice cream cones about 1/2 full. Bake as directed on the cake mix box and let cool before icing.



I whipped up some buttercream icing, dyed it green, and piped it on. I gave them mini-marshmallows for eyes and triangle sprinkles for teeth. They ended up just sprinkling everything on top instead of creating the monsters I had envisioned, but they still ended up looking like some pretty awesome monsters with eyes all over.



We had so much fun making these, and they were tasty as well.
