Our friends Iain and Rachel have had a baby (an adorable daughter named Hazel Gail) and I wanted to make a gift for their son Kieran who is officially a big brother!
For his big brother gift, they bought him a puppet theatre so I thought I should make some puppets to go with it.
I am super stoked at how they came out. They were really fun to make. I picked the story of the Three Pigs because it is a good one for practising sequencing and repetition with the lines
Wolf: Little pig, little pig, let me come in
Pig: Not by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin.
Wolf: Then I'll huff and I'll puff and I'll blow your house in!
Plus there is a matching element. Did you see what I did there? Each pig wears a bow tie made of the same colour as their house.
Lest you think I left wee Hazel out, I did make a beautiful (if I do say so myself) hot air balloon mobile for her cot that I completely neglected to get a photo of before I posted it.
And I will say that I had so much fun making these puppets (and playing with these puppets, if I am honest) that I might make myself a set!
Happy playing, Kieran!
