Songs
See My Big and Scary Eyes
(Form circles around eyes fingers)
See my big and scary eyes?
Get ready for a big surprise.
Boo!
(I'm a Little Teapot! compiled by Jane Cobb)
The Monster Stomp
If you want to be a monster, now's your chance
'Cause everybody's doing the monster dance.
You just stamp your feet,
Wave your arms around,
Stretch 'em up, strech 'em up
Then put them on the ground,
'Cause you're doing the monster stomp.
Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah!
Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah-Ooh-Ah!
(I'm a Little Teapot! compiled by Jane Cobb)
Craft
Dashing Dragons
Print out the templates on construction paper and cut out. Children glue on wings and decorate. I provide colorful feathers, glitter and crayons for children to use in decorating.

Notes
I prefer William Wiesner's illustrated version of The Gunniwolf for a slightly dangerous looking Gunniwolf.
