Getting Serious or Silly

I have both a 5 year old and a 3 year old granddaughter. When I want to have play time with both of them, I need toys that they can both enjoy. For me, my animal finger puppets are perfect. In fact, they usually beg for me get them out.

When I first started doing finger puppet play time, I was seriously enjoying the play. Each animal acted appropriate, went to find the right homes and helped to have story time with the girls. Then I discovered the fun of being silly.

The animals each took on a different voice. They each had a chance to do silly things. They tried to eat sandwiches, drink apple juice and toss a ball that was way too big for them. You can imagine, that got both of those girls just giggling across the floor.

But, bed time did come and the girls needed to settle down. The animal finger puppets came to the rescue. They acted tired, wanted to read a book and successfully settle the girls for sleep. My animal finger puppets have become Gramma’s best friend.
