There was an Old Monster

Old monster

I’m preparing early for Halloween this year and am making a series of monster stories. Emberley’s There Was an Old Monster is a perfect story to convert to flannel! And, you can download the free song here.

First I made the monster (seen above). Then I made each animal:


Tick (with stomach)

monster with animals

The rest of the animals: Ants, Lizard, Bat, Jackal, and Bear.

Lion (I love the over-sized piece!) The finished product is about 2 feet by 4 feet!

finished monsterI can’t wait to use this throughout the month of October with my in-house storytimes, and outreach!
