Making puppets

We are easing our way into the subject of History gently by learning the history of fairy tales. I love fairy tales and think that they are such an important part of making childhood magical. We have Scottish blood, so I am drawn to Celtic and Norse mythology. Acey had this book of Celtic fairy tales from his Nanna and it is our favorite, it is so beautifully written and illustrated..

We are beginning with the well known story of Rumplestiltskin, we have been reading the storybook together for a couple of weeks, and decided to do a puppet show. We designed what we wanted our puppets to look like and today Acey made his out of felt. He really enjoyed sewing it together. Here is the princess...

When we've finished the puppets we will look more into the history of the story, have a go at using a spinning wheel etc!
