paul revere puppets

Creating puppets is a great activity for multiple ages. Even the big kids got into these!

I used what we had on hand--I had brown or white paper bags to choose from, construction paper that we cut to look like coats, cotton balls (though one of my daughters wanted to make regular hair), feathers, google eyes and markers. For the hat, I made a simple pattern and then cut it out multiple times.

While the kids created, we listened to a SOTW audio lesson. I also read a short book about Paul Revere to them. Then I let them chat and have fun creating with their friends.

A few of our favorite Paul Revere resources:
