I adapted (and by "adapted," I mean "changed 3 words of") this Marian Swinger poem for a not-so-scary flannel board rhyme. The monster is gigantic, he doesn't even fit on the travel board that I usually take pictures on. But his stomach had to be huge to fit everything he's going to devour for lunch.
Eventually, I'd like to make the pieces for Ed and Rebecca Emberley's There Was An Old Monster, but for right now check out the insane feast this guys about to chow down on.
This monster ate a MONSTER lunch
a monster pie, and monster punch
monster apple, monster plum
This monster filled his monster tum,
He licked a monster lollipop
And drank a bottle of monster pop
He chomped a monster chocolate cake
And got a MONSTER stomach ache!
And as a monster bonus, here are the pattern pieces for my version of Go Away Big Green Monster, one of my most popular and most used flannel boards, presented at 85% of their actual size. If you don't have one yet, I suggest you make it ASAP!
