I came across the blog of a young mother this week who had just witnessed her kids perform their first home puppet show. It brought back memories for me! When my kids were younger, they would often get their puppets and stuffed animals and even homemade puppets together to put on a show for me and my husband. They may or may not have practiced and there may or may not have been a storyline and/or plot. But they were fun!
You can get a big cardboard box to make a puppet stage. You can turn a card table on its side or let the kids get behind a chair or couch. Then let their imagination take over!
