If you're stuck indoors due to cold weather, here's one activity that's sure to keep your child occupied and entertained. (This is an art project PLUS an opportunity to play puppets all day long!) Start with a sock that's large enough to fit the child's hand comfortably. Let the child try on the puppet to see where the features should go. (The thumb will be the bottom jaw, and the other four fingers will be the rest of the face.) Then remove the sock and use markers, felt, googly eyes, fabric paint, and yarn to create the puppet. Let it dry and hold your very own puppet show!
What puppet character or story did your child create today?

My son did a puppet show for his little sister starring Kitty McFitty and Super Bear and Pongo the Friendly Dragon from Oswald. It was hilarious and my daughter Olivia loved it (especially when Kitty McFitty kept falling) but Super Bear saved the day
