Five Friendly Monsters...or are they Aliens?


These are stolen!  I saw them at Falling Flannelboards and had to have them!  Their eyeballs are so cute, and we love to talk about 'eyeballs' in my three-year-old class...

This particular set isn't for sale, but please check out my shop with many of my other sets:
We use these (little, friendly, or silly) guys as either monsters or aliens.  We've had them jump on a bed or in a crib as monsters, and they've also bounced on planets when we call them aliens.  When you first say "monster" to young children, you might get some fearful looks--but by calling them friendly or silly, and by giggling at their adorable eyeballs, and by having them bounce around in a baby's crib, for goodness sake, the fears can be dispelled a bit. I also have a laminated set of these so the children can handle them often, giving them a little more control over something that might be a scary concept.

Flannel Friday is being hosted this week by Emily at Literary Hoots.  You can also find lots of wonderful ideas at Pinterest and Facebook.

  1. Love these little cuties! I have a monster storytime coming up in 2 weeks, thinking I might have to snag them. Thanks Wendy!
