Aliens Love Underpants Story Spoons
Sharing is caring!
Today I have been working on a new project for our KLTR Linky, Kids Love to read. As a previous early years teacher I always loved making resources to promote literacy and reading and today I decided to create some story spoons based on the children’s book Aliens Love Underpants by Claire Freedman.

How To Make Story Spoons
Using the children’s book you can create practice images on a piece of paper.
If you are super confident then you can draw directly onto the spoons.
I find painting white first is always a good idea before using darker or brighter colours.
Also drawing outlines can help stop the paint from expanding on the wood.
I was really pleased with the end result.
These story spoons can be used at home, in the nursery or pre school setting and can help make reading and literacy a little more exciting for little ones.
So what do you think? I really like them and would love you to give them a try. Just look at the book and choose an image to draw.
