We asked six early years practitioners to tell us about their favourite educational resources

The Gruffalo story sack

Well, any story sack really. I have a passion for children’s stories and I love putting together items for a sack, especially animals. I have adapted a soft toy animal to be the Gruffalo by sewing on a purple spine, eyes and a nose. I love using the props to make the story come to life. I enjoy watching the children interact and ultimately seeing the pleasure that they get out of creating the story themselves with the props, especially time after time. The best thing is seeing a child who goes from having very little interest and just listening to a story, to using a story sack and being able to tell you and other children around them the story they have heard. What could be more fun?
