You can find printable eyes and eyebrows here. Print your eyes on heavy cardstock to make sure it lasts all day.
2. Tape or glue eyes and eyebrows to hat
We used tape to attach our eyes and eyebrows, but you can also use glue or fabric glue. Just be sure to let it dry completely. Pro tip: Place the hat on your head first, then see where to place the eyes and eyebrows.
You can step up your costume game by adding things your StoryBot might like! You can also layer additional accessories like cardigans or jackets. Here’s a few ideas:
Bing – coffee mug, pogo stick
Bo – rainbows, unicorns, glitter
Beep – magnifying glass, plant
Boop – coffee mug
Bang – ukulele, drums

From Team StoryBots, have a safe and spooky Halloween!
Teachers spend all day trying to make sure the copies come out correctly, all the yogurt tubes are open, and that no one gets left behind on the playground. Why not show teachers how much you care with a StoryBots Coffee Cozy?! The only special things you need are felt and fabric glue. Get cozy and let’s craft!
cardboard coffee sleeve
optional: paint, coffee cup
Step 1: Trace the Cozy
Unfold the cozy and place over the felt. Trace the outline, then cut it out.
Step 2: Fold it up
Fold the cozy into thirds and glue the ends together with the fabric glue.
Step 3: Make a face
Cut out felt shapes for the eyes, pupils, and eyebrows.
Ta-daaa! Bing is ready for his morning buzz
Check out all the StoryBots! We used different colors to create these (mostly) happy faces. These cozies would make a great back-to-school gift for a special elementary teacher, or for cooler fall weather (did someone say pumpkin spice? 🍂 ). Make your own Bang, Bing, Beep, Boop, or Bo, OR make your own new character.
