My Dh and I made up a play set for our children to go with the book Put Me In The Zoo....Puppets for red, blue, orange, green, violet, and many colored spots.Puppets for spots on cat, hat, ball, wall, and tree. Puppets for 4 spots, small spots, tall spots, and a large spot. Puppets for box and socks and our spots to toss!
I spread out my fingers as far as I could and traced around my hand on some scrap fabric. I made it very wide at the wrist so a hand can get in and out easy. I cut out 2 layers and I made up 2 turkey puppets. My son colored one with fabric markers I did the other. Quick, simple, cheap craft! Just the way I like it! The kids are having lots of fun with them.
Mum Mum and Poppy sent my children this puppet! It is a big hit at our house. I put it in a basket with some of our colored balls to make a color game. We are feeding the puppet to work on colors today. It doesn't matter if my DD gets this or not I am just trying to use a FUN way to introduce colors. My alligator is hungry for green balls today. When he gets a ball that isn't green he spits it out and says I don't like the "....." color ball I am hungry for GREEN Balls. When he is feed a green ball we all clap and dance around. We sing she did it she did it she fed the gator the green ball!
My son and I made up a turkey craft today. We found a way of making a turkey without spending any money on supplies. We used a coffee filter, toilet paper core, watered down tempera paint, medicine droppers, and markers. It was easy and fun. They stand up very nice! My 1 year old thinks they are her new toys.
Sorry I have been gone so long! My DD cut another tooth, we all caught a bug a few weeks ago, life got busy. I will try to do better. I am sorry I never posted all of our pumpkin stuff. I guess I should start posting our turkey crafts now. I am going turkey crazy. I look at all our packaging as I am tossing it. I was putting a soda bottle in the trash and pulled it out at the last second because I thought I could make a turkey out of it. LOL!
This is a Turkey made out of a piece of an egg carton. It only took a minute or two to make. My 6 year can punch the holes with a stylus and do this on his own. My 1 year old didn't help with this one. She just ran around with feathers and laughed.
