My son is in preschool and needed a healthy birthday treat as they have more birthdays to celebrate and we don't want to stuff the 2 and 3 y/o with candy and cake  Wink So I made them little monsters in cute little beds made from matchboxes.
It's not my original idea (I wish it was) but no, I stole the idea from http://indulgy.com/post/jOmgErwJ61/matchbox-monsters#/do/page/1

Here they are:


And in their beds:


Well, I like them...I hope the kids don't prefer cake  Wink
