Toy Stories: Toys Series By Emily Jenkins

The Toys series by Emily Jenkins is one of my newer favorite read-alouds for the school age. The short stories follow the adventures of three toys: a buffalo named Lumphy, a plush Stingray, and a ball named Plastic.

Here’s a craft to make Lumphy and Stingray puppets so the children can create their own adventures.

For Lumphy:

Brown lunch paper bag

Lumphy (you can copy on brown paper, or have children color)

Directions:

Cut out the pieces and glue to paper bag.

For Stingray:

blue square dessert plate

goggly eyes

blue craft stick (you can purchase colored sticks, or paint the sticks blue)

glue

scissors

Directions:

Position the paper plate like a diamond.

Glue two goggly eyes in the upper corner.

Glue a craft stick to the bottom corner as the “stingray.”
