Here’s a fun way for your child to become a puppet in her own show. As if making a mask for her, hold a paper plate up to your child’s face to get an approximate idea of where to cut out eyeholes and a mouth. Once you’ve sketched them out, cut out the eyes and mouth area. Help her decorate the paper-plate faces to look like characters from her favorite storybook, fairy tale, or nursery rhyme. Add facial features with colorful markers, and glue on a wig, fabric fur, or dry macaroni for hair. Affix paper-plate faces to plastic rulers. Your child and her friends can maneuver the rulers so that the paper plates cover their faces when they are acting out the story.
