'Peace at Last' (story by Jill Murphy). I'm a slow knitter it took me 18 months to make Mr Bear's dressing gown, I also made him some stripey pj's and a pillow. The wooden bird whistles make very realistic sounds! Eyfs Activities, Activities For Kids, Jill Murphy, Baby Owls, Owl Babies, Peace At Last, Story Sack, Bears Game, Book Spine

'So Much' (book by Trish Cooke, illustrated by Helen Oxenbury). I bought the (bald) doll on Ebay and spent weeks embroidering the hair with thread and black knitting yarn, and made his jumpsuit. The baby is perfect for acting out the story passing him around all the 'aunts', 'uncles' and 'cousins'! 2014 -Myatt Garden Primary School Storysacks Library

'Bad Tempered Ladybird' Storysack - Myatt Garden Primary School Storysacks Library - I scanned and cut out pictures of the animal characters to make 'lolly-stick' puppets... working on each animal, made me really appreciate the beauty of Eric Carle's illustrations. #badtemperedladybird #storysack #badtempredladybirdstorysack Cut Out Pictures, Story Sack, Scan And Cut, Eric Carle, Primary School, Puppets, Appreciation, Characters, Illustrations

Goose that laid Golden Egg Storysack - game - making photo - manual - Myatt Garden Primary School Storysacks Library - The hen/goose house shaped game bag above is in the Goose that Laid Golden Eggs storysack. It is made of scrap linen fabric and I used a fine paintbrush and brown fabric paint for the detail. A fine 0.3 permanent marker (available from art shops) was used to write the game instructions on a piece of cotton fabric. I really enjoyed making the eggs, they are made from Fimo… Linen Fabric, Cotton Fabric, Goose House, Shape Games, Fimo Clay, Permanent Marker, Tampons, Primary School, Paint Brushes

'Going to Hospital' (an Usborne book) Made way back in 2005 with three other Mums (one of them a nurse at Great Ormond Steet Childrens Hospital). Made for lending to children going to hospital for an operation. I made the doll 'Ben', all his clothes, pj's and hospital gown (inside bag). Notice the now obsolete cassette tape!

'The Goose That Laid Golden Eggs' Aesops fable. 2009. I bought the dolls at a table top sale and made them new clothes/hair; made the nest from knitting yarn; the gold egg is a music shaker; I made the game bag from scrap linen and the eggs from Fimo clay (they feel lovely, but now, after a few years use, several have teeth marks!).

Quite regularly I make batches of game pieces/cards to replace lost ones from the Myatt Garden School Storysacks Library – missing pieces stop play! Paper Glue, Cardboard Paper, Primary School, Aprons, Storytelling, Lisa, Learning, Garden, Blog

Shark in the Park Storysack - gameboard - making photo manual - Myatt Garden Primary School Storysack Library - I made this game for the Shark in the Park storysack. I used brightly coloured paper, cut and glued to two base pieces of A4 paper. The pictures were drawn on white paper, coloured with pens, cut out and glued on. The Shark game counters were done in the same way, then laminated. The two A4 boards were laminated and taped down the back so that it would fold neatly in the storysack.

Swan Princess Storysack - characters - making photo - Myatt Garden Primary School Storysacks Library - Luckily I’ve had quite a lot of soft dolls donated for Storysacks use, these two were used to make characters in The Swan Princess story sack. I snipped off the hair and sewed knitting yarn on instead. I went to town a bit on the King’s clothes, but simple clothes can be made out of scraps, old t-shirts can work well.
