Learning through play – The Gruffalo

I love an easy craft where I have all of the materials on hand!

This little cute Gruffalo was a lot of fun to make.

  Don’t you just love Gruffalo though he looks scary?

The Gruffalo is both stylish and hilarious, simple in its execution, as it plays skillfully on a child’s fears and then shows that even the most threatening of monsters are not always as scary as they seem.

So if you ask our family who is our favorite monster, it’s definitely The Gruffalo!

I will give you a brief description about his look.

“He has terrible tusks, and terrible claws, and terrible teeth in his terrible jaws.”

His eyes are orange, he has a poisonous green wart at the top of his nose,his tongue is black,he has knobbly knees and he has purple prickles all over his back.

What you need:

Construction paper – black, orange and white



Chalk (white and green)


Cut gruffalo’s eyes, ear, and waddle from the construction paper.

Glue the gruffalo’s face together and attach everything to the black construction paper.

Draw the nose and teeth using chalk.

Voila!  A super easy craft!

Happy craft-ing!!
