Small cardboard box (10.5" x 13.75" x 5")
Scissors (a box cutter is also helpful)
Computer with Internet access and printer
Scrap fabric and wooden dowel (optional)
This activity requires a bit more preparation on the part of the adult than many of the other activities featured on this blog. First, you will need family photos. These may be more recent photos of people your child(ren) know, or you may choose to use older photos of long-gone ancestors, which is what we did. I found full-length photos of my grandmother and her family members, but I honestly don't think most kids would care if you used torso or head shots.
I printed out these photos and glued each of them to an index card, in order to make them a little more sturdy. Then, I glued the photos onto popsicle sticks.
I printed out copies of the images onto normal computer paper, and taped them together in a line. These images would serve as the 'scenery' for our puppet show.
