This is something I would love to have many variations of for different stories. The kids are able to see the characters move as opposed to a picture in a book. They're able to also hear and connect to the characters that have a different voice. They can also create their own finger puppets and gain language development telling their story.
A Friendly Mitten Monsters Craft. The kids had names like Mitten Monsters, Glove Buddies, Mitten Stuffies and Monster Stuffies… whatever you call them, they are easy and affordable to make and result in hours of fun for your kids over the long winter months.
