The Fairy helped make the parts of the story bag. Purple prickles were made by painting this pine cone purple. Orange eyes from bottle tops and 'googley eyes'. The tongue is piece of black felt.
Terrible tusks, teeth and claws were all pieces of stone chosen for their appropriate size and shape.
Knobbly knees and turned out toes were pieces of brown craft foam. The knees had 'added knobble' by mixing porridge and silver paint.
Once you've made a story sack the best thing to do it to take it to a deep dark wood and tell a story.
If you like this story sack you might also like our Owl babies story sack and our Nativity story sack.
