Paper Plate
Puppet Play


Provide children with paper plates, crayons, glue, yarn, and tongue depressors. Invite children to draw faces on the plates and use yarn to make hair. Help children glue a tongue depressor to the back of their plates. At circle time, invite pairs of children to present a "puppet play" to the group. Accept any reasonable dialogue the children create.
