Lights, camera … action! Any day can be turned into premiere day when your children have a great idea for a story, a stage and a cast of fun puppets to work with. Having a collection of ready-to-use puppets doesn’t require frequent trips to the toy store. Instead, all you’ll need are some crafts supplies and a bit of imagination. This week’s roundup is all about puppets, from smaller finger puppets to on-the-go stages your child can take anywhere.
You don’t need a needle and thread to make these sweet finger puppets! The Idea Room shows you how to create an entire cast with some felt, glue and accessories.
