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?

I think this wouls be a disaster with my three as they are only 5, 4 and 2.5 . . . howver my children have been know to put on a play when we can't go outside . . . I wrap the girls in blankets (princess dresses) and we put on fun hats/crowns/bows and i put a tie on ds and we will pretend play for sometimes hours . . .
