Story Time: Folktales
I paired Paul Galdone's version of The Little Red Hen with Louise Martin and Gail Yerrill's The Gingerbread Man.
Our craft was a gingerbread man finger puppet. In the past I have cut them out on brown foam, but this time I just used brown construction paper and it held up fine. Works great with the Crayola construction paper crayons--I did it with more kids at an outreach activity without the googly eyes and pom poms, and solely crayons. They turned out good as well.
The gingerbread man finger puppet template can be found at Doodles and Jots.
I also did this Story Time last year and made gingerbread houses.
