There’s a Yak in My Bed! by K. Pluta

Summary: Ted goes upstairs ~ only to find a yak in his bed! How will he get the yak out?

 Yak Craft

What You’ll Need:

  • Dark and light brown foam sheet/construction paper 

  • Pencil {to outline}

  • Scissors

  • Brown yarn

  • Googly eyes

  • Glue


How to Make the ‘Y’ for Yak:

  1. Trace and cut an uppercase ‘y’ out of the dark brown foam sheet or construction paper. I used a smaller piece of a foam sheet that was about 4" x 2.5" in size.

  2. Using the light brown foam, cut out a face for your yak and two horns for the top of his head.short bones.

  3. Have your little one help you snip yarn in two different lengths. I cut shorter pieces for the yak’s beard and longer pieces for the hair on the top of his head.

  4. Glue the ‘Y’ onto the yak’s face. Add the horns and hair and eyes.

  5. Read the book again with your little one!
