Tell Stories Create stories, play make-believe and let your child be a storyteller.

PLAY

Stories with Puppets

After you read a fun story, act it out with stuffed animals or homemade puppets. Using props makes telling stories more fun, and helps children remember what comes next in the story. Feel free to get silly or make up a new ending!


SING

Chubby little snowman

(As the bunny nibbles the snowman's nose, tickle your child's nose!)

A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny
Looking for his lunch,
Ate that snowman's nose
With a nibble, nibble, CRUNCH!
