My Little Dragon loves puppets. We have a couple different puppets we play with occasionally but it was time he made his own. I thought this would be a great activity for a Daddy Folder!
I provided everything needed inside the folder in a zip lock bag.
- Unmatched sock
- Yarn (different colors to provide choice)
- Super glue
- Googly eyes (different sizes to provide choice)
- Pom Poms (different colors and size to provide choice)
I give the folder to Little Dragon to present to Jerry. He is always very excited. I also tell him he is not allowed to look until he and Jerry are sitting down together. :D
I leave them to create together, clicking away on the camera to get a picture or two.
When the puppet was finished Jerry took a turn talking to Little Dragon then Little Dragon tried the sock puppet on.
Little Dragon was not occupied playing with the puppet for long but I think that is because there was only 1 puppet. I provided multiple socks in the folder but the two of them only made the one.
Since then I use the puppet as a visitor during circle time. Little Dragon enjoys this remembering the special time he spent with Jerry to make it. The two of them are always happy to see each other!
