Monster dad

Given the choice of playing in the bathtub or playing monster with daddy and taking a lightning-fast shower instead, our boys opt to play monster. Rob dons a blue play tunnel as monster garb and either hides until the boys work up the nerve to find him -- or he walks around the house making monster noises and sticking his arms out of the tunnel in search of little boys to eat.
It's one of those games that produces lots of joyous shrieking and running and laughter -- in addition to the grunts and gobbling noises of the blue monster. I love to listen to it all while I do my post-dinner kitchen cleaning.

Monster catches food.

Monster eats food.

Monster emerges from his blue skin for some grand-finale wrestling.

What raucous games do your kids play with you or your significant other?
