Remember those board books where you stick your fingers inside and they make little feet for a person? Or arms?
At the mini-puppet festival where we performed in McLean, there were several workshops where children could make some simple puppets. My girls had fun and made all kinds of stuff. I joined in the fun, and the elephant below was my creation. I have to confess that my ten-year old's elephant was much, much cooler than mine. She added wings to her elephant! (I should have photographed that one.)
Kids have the best imaginations.
Puppets like this are great for younger children. Great for car rides (something I am always, always on the lookout for!), too. Fun for finger play additions. Also an appropriate activity for an older child to do with a younger one.
