How To Make This Room On The Broom Reading Resource
Find or purchase a copy of your story book Room on the broom. Alternatively you can visit the library or look up images online.
Use these pictures to draw your own characters onto wooden slices. Make sure you have an eraser incase you make any mistakes. If you don’t have wooden slices, you could make use of cardboard pieces instead.
Next paint the Room on the broom characters with a paint brush or posca paint pens. Once the characters are dry you can outline with a black marker pen or black posca paint pen.
If you’re using paint pens, you could allow your toddler to try his hands at it too, especially if he is now able to color within lines.
