Description Puppets

Have your kids create their own puppet show and present it to friends and family.

2. Get your kids to create the puppets or use pre-made ones. For quick and easy puppets get a few Popsicle sticks and a magazine. Cut out people from the magazine, glue the pictures to some thin cardboard, cut them out and glue them to the Popsicle sticks.

3. Have the children practice the play with the puppets.

4. Get the kids to perform the play in front of friends or family.

    Fun and Easy activity. I found it to be most enjoyable for the 5-8 year old age range. Definitely helps to bring quiet children out of their shells too!
