The Puppet Show
Luke and his snake. When his fingers got misplaced he would come up to me and say, "my snake broke". It broke a lot today, but being the hero that I am, I fixed it everytime.
Silas and his mouse.
Hattie and Rapunzel
I bought this sock puppet kit on sale about a month ago and it has been KILLING Silas that we have not made a sock puppet. "Project time" or whatever you call it, though, can be SO stressful. You know?
I remember on of the first times Stacy came over with Gage and Emma I got out these little plaster of paris magnet things for them to paint and Stacy said she HATED doing stuff like that with the kids. Its HARD. Begging, messes, and lots of work. I agree. But sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do. And today it was sock puppets.
So, I separately asked each kid which one they wanted to do...picking it out of a little book of ideas. I told them to go play while I got each one ready.
After I don't know how long, everyone was pretty pleased with their results. It proved to be a lot of entertainment too!
