Kindergarten teacher and StoryBots fan, Mary, wanted to bring the StoryBots out of the screens and into her class’s arms with a homemade StoryBots pillow. She designed and crafted her creation completely from scratch, and we think she did an A+ job!

Not only are we super excited to see the StoryBots come to life, but Mary was also awesome enough to share her secrets by creating a simple visual tutorial on how to make one of these pillows at home. Download her step-by-step guide here, and be sure to show us your StoryBots pillows!

Have any StoryBots crafts you’ve made? Let us know and we’d love to share them!

The gang's all here!

Mary's class LOVES StoryBots!
