How to Make

  1. Paint 4 wooden people and the book with white acrylic paint and allow to dry. (Leave the book open to dry to avoid sticking.)
  2. Paint the front of the book blue and the edges brown.
  3. Cut out 28 leaves from the green self-adhesive felt measuring about 3cms long and 1.5cms wide. Decorate the border of the front cover with the leaves.
  4. With a pencil, lightly write the words of the book title ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. We used letters 2cms high and stacked. When you are happy with the word positions, use a thin paintbrush to write over the pencil in red paint.
  5. Paint the front of the Red Riding Hood figure yellow. Then, paint a skin-colour circle above for Red Riding Hood’s face and paint the rest of wooden figure in red. Allow to dry.
  6. Draw Red Riding Hood’s eyes and mouth with a black deco pen.
  7. Make a small bow with red wool and stick it to the front of Red Riding Hood with the Super Tacky Glue.
  8. Decorate the other story characters accordingly.
