We were reading The Gruffalo today and I suddenly remembered some puppets I made a while back for my class when we spent a few weeks working on a Gruffalo theme.
They loved playing with them at the time and put on little shows for each other from behind the puppet theatre I have in the class, reciting the very familiar lines from the story and retelling the story in their own way.
So I went searching for them today and here they are!
Made up from scraps I had lying around the house. I should also to thank my (then) teaching partner for throwing a few bits and pieces my way.
They were easy enough to make and - if you can find suitable scraps - free!!
I took a picture of the paper patterns I drew so you can see how simple they are. But for some strange reason I noticed that although I have four patterns and four puppets, I have a fox pattern but a mouse puppet.
Can't remember quite how that happened but maybe I'll get around to making a fox soon!
