PLAY

Fun with Puppets

Puppets are fun for kids and a great storytelling tool. Using puppets, children can act out familiar tales, their own made-up stories and talk about things they have done. You can make puppets from paper plates, socks, gloves, or even glue pictures to craft sticks. However you choose to make them, make sure you let your child’s imagination run wild!


SING

Hey Diddle Diddle

Hey diddle, diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon!
