Monkey Business


Today was the last day of VBS at our church.  I was on the snack detail.  We had almost 800 children each day.

Needless to say we were thrilled to have that many kids, but today all of the adults were weary!  The theme for the week was the rainforest.  The new Monkey Designer Cut-Outs were perfect decorations. 
 With the JUMBO monkeys it was easy to turn any room into a rainforest.  We  just added a few colorful tissue paper flowers and twisted paper vines with big green leaves
to make it a junge.

Monkeys and jungle are popular classroom themes.  When we were taking the decorations down today a lady was following me around  gathering up all the vines, leaves, and flowers.  I could tell she was a teacher!!  She looked at me and said,
"I just decided what my classroom theme is going to be next fall?" 
  I gave her all the monkeys.  She is all set for next year!

Get creative and bring the theme to all corners of the classroom.  Bulletin boards, borders, name tags, name plates, storage boxes, stickers....monkeys are everywhere.  And that is not even counting the ones in your class!!
You can find all our monkey products at http://www.creativeteaching.com/

Sure, the new JUMBO Monkey Designer Cut-Outs add to the jungle theme, but think outside the box!  You can do lots more with the monkey JUMBO cut-outs.

To make a themed step stool simply use  Modge Podge to adhere
the  Monkey Cut-Out to the stool.  This one is perfect for preschoolers to use to reach the sink to wash their hands.
A few construction paper leaves and a couple of buttons add to the "jungle" look. This same technique can be applied to a chair or
file cabinet or anything else in the room that needs
"something" to add a little fun.

Need more fun?  Add a monkey to a lap desk.  Again, use Modge Podge to adhere the monkey and a few construction paper leaves to the top of the desk.  You can personalize the desk with our 1" letter stickers.  This lap desk would make a great birthday gift or for someone special at your house.
You can never have too much monkey business!!
