“Go Away, Big Green Monster” by Ed Emberley Puppet


This is such a fun puppet, I planned a monster storytime just so I could use it. This puppet was purchased at Lakeshore Learning.

If I Were a Monster

If I were a happy monster, I’d go ha ha ha
If I were a sad monster, I’d go boo hoo hoo
If I were a mad monster, I’d go stomp stomp stomp
If I were a scared monster, I’d go ahh ahh ahh
But I’m just me, you see, so I’ll just read read read

Monster, Monster

Monster, monster turn around
Monster, monster touch the ground
Monster, monster reach up high
Monster, monster squint your eyes
Monster, monster show your teeth
Monster, monster stomp your feet
Monster, monster slap your knees
Monster, monster sit down please

Monster Brown Bag Puppet

Today we painted with LEGO® DUPLO® bricks! It was really neat to see the patterns the bricks can make by using the different sides. While this was a lot of fun it was messier than I anticipated. I had one toddler end up getting paint all over his dad’s shorts! I wish I gave them a notice last week that we would be painting this week. Also, make sure to instruct children and adults to put glue on the monster parts and not on the bag. No one wants painted glue sticks! The monster parts are from Somewhat Simple.

How it Went: Monsters are always a fun theme! This was the first time I used the big green monster hand puppet and it was a blast. I’m now interested in purchasing more items like that one.
