Marilyn, The Toymaker, has some delightful puppets to print out for the children.
Imagine the little children having a magical time , creating dialogue with their characters outdoors on the grass, under the trees or even in the sand. The children can play while parents tend to the garden or other outdoor tasks nearby.
To make the puppets last longer with little children, print them on heavier paper and cover with clear contact paper. And if they don't work well on little fingers, you can always tape them to popcicle or craft sticks, and even stick them in little balls of clay to stand upright.
Savor each moment with the children and enJOY !
