This exciting book is written by Julia Donaldson, and is brought to life by the colorful and extremely beautiful illustrations of Axel Scheffler. This is the same bestselling, award-winning team who created The Gruffalo.

Room on the Broom tells of the story of a friendly witch and a remarkable journey on her broomstick. From the start, the weather conditions are against her; the witch loses her belongings (hat, bow, and wand). She meets a cast of helpful characters along the way and offers them all a ride on her broomstick. Together they are able to overcome adversity. The friends not only find the witch’s missing possessions, they also escape a hungry dragon!

Materials Used:

– Paper towel rolls
Brown tempera paint
– Paper bags
– Twine
– Scissors
– Glue
Star stickers
– Glitter
Small acrylic craft jewels

Have children paint their paper towel rolls and sprinkle them with glitter while they’re still wet. Once the rolls are dry, little ones can decorate their broomsticks with stickers and jewels, and any other items provided. Give each child a strip of paper bag and have them fringe (cut) the edges. They can glue their fringe on their sticks and you can help them wrap and tie the twine around it. A crumpled ball of paper can then be glued into the front of the broom, and voila! Behold some truly magnificent brooms!
