We’ve had a string of cold, rainy days – I know boo-hoo. The kids were going a bit crazy, so we pulled out our scissors and Kumon workbooks and started having fun. Suddenly, I had a stroke of motherhood genius and realized the pages that Little Miss was cutting apart from the Let’s Cut Paper workbook would make very nice paper bag puppets. She loved the idea, so I grabbed the glue sticks and a stack of paper bags (part of every crafter’s stash, right?) and the kids had a blast making and playing with these puppets. Then we pulled out the puppet stage I made them for Christmas and hung it in the doorway and they presented their hilarious shows. “Hi, I’m a puppet! I’m a goat puppet. How are you today? It’s raining outside!!” Good rainy times had by all.
