Stick People Puppets

We had a really bad storm the other night! In our back yard, a tree topple over and would have hit the house if it had not gotten tangled up in the power lines! We were very fortunate that the power lines did not break!! Thank you Jesus! Today we ventured around back and selected a few choice sticks from the Near-Miss Tree! This activity was great fun! My Little Mister has a VERY active imagination and needed no prompting for the puppet interaction! I wish I had it on video! I laughed until I hurt!

 Objective- Acts out stories using dramatic play (MS Early learning guidelines for Infants and Toddlers: Language, Vocabulary and Literacy Development 1.4.8)

Materials- Sticks, glue, google eyes, scrap materials, pizza box or other card board.

1. Collect suitable sticks from yard.
2. Glue on scrap material for clothes.
3. Add eyes.
4. Decorate box or other form of card board for a theater. We used an old bread stick box which already had a slot in the front!
5. Let the imagination take control!

The Near-Miss Tree

He loved it so much that I went back and decorated the box (and tweaked it a little)!! We play with it often!
