It’s very simple! Just print out the pictures from this template, cut it out, then stick it on a lolly/ice-cream stick. And voila! Your puppets 🙂
1) We need at least 2 people.
2) Go behind a cabinet. Make sure you aren’t seen by the audience 🙂
2) Sing baa baa black sheep and pop out each character as you sing the song. For example, when you sing “baa baa black sheep”, show the sheep; “one for my master”, show the master and so on 🙂
Happy making and performing!

I love the “I can sing a rainbow” song (You can find it on youtube :)) and missed singing it with the kids from my previous school, so I decided to teach it to this new group too. To reinforce what we learned, we made this rainbow craft. It’s really simple.
Materials needed: paper plate, pictures of stuff we see in the sky (we had a sun, hot air balloon, and a plane. Template below)
To-do: Cut the paper plate into half. Draw the outlines for the colors of the rainbow.
1) Color the rainbow
2) Color the sun, hot air balloon and a plane. You can add the clouds too, which my kids did 🙂 OR you can use cotton balls 🙂
3) Cut out the pictures.
4) Glue them on the rainbow 🙂

As I was browsing the net for some craft ideas, I stumbled across a few that inspired me and gave me this idea for Elmer the Elephant 🙂 (I’ve done another craft for the Elmer and the Lost Teddy Bear. You can find it here.)
This one’s pretty straight-forward really.
This is the template: Elmer craft
To make it more ‘fun’ I used the fasteners for Elmer’s ears so the kids can move them up and down 🙂
These are some really great books to read to your children. Some of my favorite from the list are:
1. Guess How Much I Love You by Sam McBratney and Anita Jeram
2. Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson
3. The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle (OF COURSE! :))
4. The Napping House by Audrey Wood (I’ve not read this book myself but from its synopsis, it sounds like a charming little story which I’d love to read to my kids :))
5. Brown Bear Brown Bear What Do You See? by Eric Carle (Also one of my all-time favs!)

Hope you can find something that tickles your fancy! 🙂
