Got monsters lurking under your bed? Never fear, we have
created our own monster spray guaranteed to rid your home of monsters!
5 year old Jonah has been very worried about monsters under his bed. We have tried reasoning and logic to explain that there are no such thing as monsters. (Even if there were, there is no room under his bed) We tried pointing out that no monster would want to eat a skinny, bony little 5 year old when there is a big juicy 7 year old in the top bunk. Nothing has worked. Until we read the book Fudge-a-Mania by Judy Blume. In the book, a little girl's grandmother makes her monster spray. "Just one spray keeps monsters away!" Jonah knew this would work for him.
We thought about what kind of things monsters would hate. The boys decided that monsters wouldn't like anything that smelled good. We realized we already had the perfect recipe for monster spray - our homemade linen spray. It smells great and you can whip up a batch very quickly. Be prepared to make several batches. They love spraying it everywhere!
First we poured 2 tablespoons of vodka into our empty spray bottle. Then we filled it almost to the top with distilled water. We thought the monsters would hate being sprayed with water that came from a bottle with a cute baby on it!
Next we added 20 drops of our favorite essential oil. The more flowery the better! Monsters hate flowers!
The boys even made labels for their bottles.
How cute is Jack's monster spray!
