Monster and Ghost Spray Away

Stay away monster and ghost spray

Stay away monster and ghost spray

Monster and Ghost Spray Away – At some point, most parents hear their children say “I’m scared to go to sleep because there’s a monster under my bed.”  I know we went through that almost 2 years ago when we moved into our new house.  Noelle was petrified that there was a monster in her closet.  We tried everything we could think of but nothing diminished her fear.  Then after doing a bit of research online I heard about “monster spray”.  I quickly jimmied up a spray water bottle with a cute label and gave it to Noelle to keep the monsters away.  That was all it took, after that she wasn’t afraid of monsters any more!

Now I can help pass along this parenting gem by giving you this printable label.  Simply print the file out on a piece of paper, trim to the appropriate size and stick to a spray bottle.  Just use a regular water bottle with a spray nozzle.  If you can, add some sort of scent to the water so that your child believes the spray has magical monster and ghost repelling qualities (lemon, orange, vanilla or essential oils would all work well). Sweet dreams!
