Lately Vin has really been into the story of the 'Three Little Pigs' - I seem to have a condition where I can't read a book without thinking 'how can we turn this into a playtime activity?' so our two obsessions met and I made him this set of pretend play puppets.
I cut the shapes out of craft foam and stuck them onto popsicle sticks - I love their cute little curly tails on the back!
Vin has a love/hate thing with the big bad wolf - he gets really into the story but will freak out if we get too scary! I'm hoping it's just an overactive imagination, and will calm down as he gets older and udnerstands the difference between real and pretend. I figured I'd better make a kind of friendly looking wolf, with whiskers instead of sharp teeth all the same.
We used our little piggie puppets in some more pretend play - I'll share with you tomorrow!
