Winter Time Blues!

Anyone else feeling cooped up?? Today we decided to do a fun craft to kill the mid-afternoon slump. These little puppets were such a hit. I piled up some old Highlights magazines, family pictures, and some ratty paper back books that were missing pages (and were basically headed toward the recycle bin) and we cut out funny faces/characters and made our own puppets. All you need is faces/characters, construction paper, kabob sticks and tape. You could also color pages from coloring books and use those shapes for your puppets. Great fine motor activity too! :)

Hey--I had a brainstorm that using a straw instead of kabob skewer might be safer as well as easier to procure in the average kitchen! I'm going to try this--too cute!
