this is a really “crafty” project, but some children seem to be comforted by the simplicity, the short-ended process of projects like this.
paper bags and precut shapes (eyes, nose, tongue, tail). i didn’t take a picture of the “legs.” one friend wanted legs, so we simply cut a triangle shape out of the bottom of the folded bag….legs!
we used a mirror on the table to notice where our eyes, noses, mouths and ears are. then we looked at dog pictures and saw the similarities.
one little guy made three puppets, each a little different.
