Both of the boys have their own quiet books and both books have a page with finger puppets.  This zoo one has a gate that opens to reveal three animal finger puppets.

How I Made It
The materials were simple for this page: felt and foam stickers for the word "zoo."

The finger puppets were part of a birthday card that one of the boys received, so I did not make them.  However, they could easily be recreated.  They sit perfectly inside a pocket behind the gate.

Why We Love This Page
This page is a lot of fun.  It is great for imaginative play, learning about animals, and fine motor skills.  J loves to read and trace the letters of the word "zoo."  That's why I prefer to hot glue foam letters on for words.  I like the different texture and the foam letters are so appealing to both boys.

The finger puppets alone keep the boys busy for awhile, especially K, who has a hard time getting these particular puppets on his fingers.

That didn't work, so he tried the monkey one instead.
Success!

    1. You can definitely get some at Michaels, or at least, you used to be able to buy some there.
