Hello duckies, I'm busy and frazzled but I'm posting nonetheless!
Anybody else have this puppet? I inherited it when I started here. I use it to make story time magic!
|Folkmanis Puppet $12|
|Oh, there's an opening here|
But that's not really part of the story, just funny. So I was getting ready for storytime, and somewhere in the depths of Google I found a suggestion to use a brown paper bag for a cocoon. Sadly, I have lost the source, but it was a classroom teacher forum and I'm sorry! And I thought, "Hmm, I have that puppet with the 'secret' opening...story time magic!"
|You can make magic with these common library items!|
|Yeah, he lost an eye|
|Bag with butterfly hidden inside, caterpillar added.|
When I tore open the bag and pulled out the butterfly (holding it at the opening) it completely blew their little minds, and they pronounced me magical. I highly recommend story time magic.
p.s. The picture of the cocoon is in my office, and I'm just leaving it there. Story time magic becomes office magic.
