the story of: goldilocks and the three bears puppets
It took me long enough, but finally, finally, I have the first puppet workshop to go with our year of stories! This is a really simple one, but simple is good to start with right?
To go along with the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, I made some mitten puppets! You may remember that I was in a mood not too long ago because I couldn't find any, but my sister came to the rescue! She dug around and found an old pair, and now they have a new life as puppets. (If you can't find mittens, fear not...you can make some mitts out of felt.)
Two mittens work for all four characters; you just turn them around! They are oh so fun, and I'm seriously wanting to wear them as mittens just so that people ask me about them. Silly, I know.
The project patterns and all instructions are packaged up in one easy-to-download-and print PDF. And if you make some mitten puppets, I'd love to see them! Post a link to your post in the comments, or add photos to the Wild Olive Flickr pool.
