Anyone recognize these instant puppets I made? Anyone have “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” memorized? These were so simple to make. I made them for a class I taught on Eric Carle. They were a little past my older kids age when I made them, but I am glad I held on to them. Daughter of Purpose was having such a good time matching each character to the pages in her book and what a learning opportunity it was…red bird, brown bear, white dog, etc. I think I will have to keep these out and work with her every day on them. I bet she’ll have her colors and animal names memorized in no time and she’ll won’t even notice what work it was because the puppets make it so much fun!
I forgot to mention when I originally posted this that my favorite part of when Daughter of Purpose found these was when I witnessed Littlest One sitting with her and reading “Brown Bear, Brown Bear” to her. It was a tender moment between siblings and even sweeter hearing him have such confidence to read out loud to her. Love that!
