My DD has this fear of monsters and I have been SO unsuccessful at ending this fear.  We even have a no monsters allowed sign on her door Smiley So we have taken an "if you can't beat 'em join 'em" approach.

We made this pillow with what my DD would look like if she was a monster...

keeee--yuuuuut!!!

Have you tried the spray bottle thing?  Just in case you haven't heard of it - get a spray bottle and either make a label or draw with permanent markers the words "monster repellant".  Fill it with water and a little bit of scent of some sort - perfume or oil.  Then, either she can spray it when she thinks there's a monster or you can spray it before bed time or whenever.

Waddya think?

I love that!  She looks like she loves it.  I hope it works for you.  It's a good idea to make monsters seem fun like that.  When my daughter went through that phase I tried to make monsters out to be wonderful.  Sesame Street was very helpful.  She would say "I think there's a monster in my closet" and I'd say "Yay! I bet it's Elmo or Grover".  Once she realize that Elmo was a monster she was cured.

Cute! I love it! And the idea of the spray-bottle repellent is amazing. Smiley

I love the idea of the monster repellant and my kids would love the pillow! I made pixie dust with salt and cookie sprinkles. It sounded like a good idea at the time, but, the carpet got stained from the color in the cookie sprinkles. Oh, well! Stanley Steamer to the rescue. Now I know a better way!

Monster repellent never works... I had one living under my bed and another one in my closet and they just never seemed deterred by the spray bottle. Sad

Nice pillow!

Thanks!  You guys are so sweet!

We have monster repellent and we used to use it nightly- a bit less often lately.  I just put water with a drop of lavender essential oils into a misting bottle.  I tried to locate it, but I think the brave monster must have taken it.  I will keep hunting because it is cute...We also have monster sachets throughout the room, a cute Hello Kitty light that chases away the shadows and a rather large greyhound who would definitely eat any monsters caught wandering the grounds....

I made a version for my nephew who was born this summer in his likeness, I however forgot to get pics.  I will post if I get them.

Y'all have a wonderful night!
