Child's Art to a Real "Stuffy Monster"
I am working on getting my three year old daughter back to sleeping in her own bed at night. We have been very nice and tried everything she's asked. Clearly that method is not working. Last week she told me she would sleep in her bed if she had a "stuffy monster." She went on to tell me a stuffy monster is a nice monster that keeps all the bad monsters out of her room. She said she saw it at Target. My daughter will say anything to continue sleeping in our bed...anything. I suggested we immediately go to Target and buy the stuffy monster. Her response was "maybe tomorrow." Sure kid, I'm onto you. I decided to make her one instead. I asked her to draw me a picture of what her stuffy monster should look like and I told her she could help me sew. She picked out all the fabric and approved the design through the entire process.
We used a plate as a pattern for the two body pieces.
