Mod MonkeyTheme: Pin The Tail On The Monkey

In planning Ian’s birthday party, I got to thinking that there will be a few kids coming that are a bit older than Ian. I thought some games would be nice, even though Ian couldn’t play. So I made a pin the tail one the monkey game!

I found a picture of a monkey that I really liked. In reality, it was on Ian’s pajamas. So I scanned it into my computer.

I zoomed in as far as I could go and printed it out. It was in pieces and parts of it weren’t there, but it’s easy enough I could read between the lines.

Then I took the leftover felt from my birthday banner and using what I printed, cut his little body out.

Then I took some tan felt and cut out his ears, tummy and face.

I then drew eyes, nose and mouth on with a fabric pen.

Then I used my sewing machine and zig-zag stitched his tan parts onto his brown parts. Then all of him into a blue piece of felt.

Then I made a yellow felt boarder and sewed it on, making a casting at the top I can slide a dowel through to hang him up.

Then I made a bunch of curly tails and hot glued some Velcro dots onto the backs. The hard side, not the soft…does that make sense?DSC_4919DSC_4920


I think he’s cute! I love him. Hopefully the kids will love him too!

Where do you put the tail? You can't see his bottom. If you put it on the front... well, that is just not kid-friendly.
