Make Puppets Out of Her Favorite Characters

Have your child choose two favorite book characters and make puppets out of them. These puppets can be crafted from paper bags, socks, card stock, or foam sheets. Suggest that your child make two characters from different books, and have them engage in an interesting conversation about what their stories have in common.
