Monsters Rocked the Park (Random)

My grand-daughter loves the movie, Monsters Inc.  For her 2nd birthday party, we went all out with a Monsters Inc. party at our city park.  My daughter made the invitations, "sushi", and "Scream Collectors".  The "Scream Collectors" contained an Employee Handbook, bugs, frogs, lizards, and other things to make you scream.  I made the "Feed the Monsters" toss game, and altered a bowling set to create "Bowling for Monsters".  I also made a screen of doors for a decoration.  I didn't think we would be able to get the children off the playground, but they had a blast with our homemade games.

My nieces, my daughter, and I were alert for any 2319's.  We didn't have a white sock, but a sock is a sock.  The bigger kids loved being chased, when we detected contamination.

On the chance that some children were not familiar with the movie, we set up a projector and "screen", and played the movie from my laptop. It was funny to see 2 and 3 year olds watching the movie.  It was like they were studying it.  They would watch the movie for a while, and then play for a while.

It was dark when we finally left.
