Old MacDonald Stick Puppets

These came about by accident as many things do when we start to play and make.

I bought these animal sticky shapes a while back in one of those bargain stores for next to nothing. 

The quality of the images isn't great but they're good enough for collage/sticky pictures, especially considering the price.

We had a whole load of crafty 
bits and bobs out today including these and I just happened to peel off the backing of one of the animals and stick it on a lolly stick.  

We were happily playing with them but the back was still mainly exposed and very sticky so to cover up the sticky bit I just cut out some colourful circles and stuck them on which worked well.....

Before we knew it we had made a whole set as well as a cup to hold them all!

We've been singing away today, and not just Old Macdonald.....

What about making some more pigs and telling the story of the 3 Little Pigs, or singing This Little Piggy, Baa Baa Black Sheep or Giddy Up Horsey?

If you know any cow or cockerel songs please let me know!
