We have been talking about art and storytelling . Last night I wondered what we could do to combine these two activities. How can art influence storytelling ? I asked the kids what they thought . I brought from upstairs two different puppets. ( You probably don’t know I had a puppet hoarding problem for a while.. ) We talked about how they are used for storytelling ? How could we make puppets ? And.. then it took a life of it’s own. Exactly how it should happen.
What I found interesting is how they continued to add more …
Grayson decided that his chicken needed to be orange later in the morning .
We will probably do this again and I will present it as ” Puppets for our room. ” I think my next step in this activity would be to write a story and use our puppets . They were SO excited about their creations they want to take them home. I am sure they won’t mind doing it again. ( Note to self– purchase 100 lunch bags. )
