Children’s book of the week: Llamas in Pyjamas by Russell Punter

A group of llamas have a sleepover and experience some ghostly happenings in this unexpectedly spooky story!

Paper plate llamas

These llamas are cute, and they can be made with very basic supplies.  Just some paper plates, regular felt tips and ordinary glue. Find out more over here.

Cupcake liner llama craft

Besides being a tongue-twister, this is a lovely colourful craft design – this time the llamas are made from paper cupcake cases.   Try them out for yourselves over here.

DIY mini llama piñata

A more ambitious project over here with nice, clear instructions.  Kids won’t want to smash up this mini piñata (which is just as well, as it doesn’t contain any sweets!)

Spider headband craft

‘Llamas in Pyjamas’ isn’t just about llamas.  It’s also about spiders.  The instructions for this spider craft include some great tips for helping children achieve the different steps.

Pencil eraser ghost craft

It’s a bit early for Halloween, but ‘Llamas in Pyjamas’ does feature ghosts – so here is a very pleasing ghost craft made with a pencil eraser.  Finger painting would work equally well.
