Not Flannel Friday: Dear Zoo in 3D

I thought it might be fun to do a 3D version of the classic Dear Zoo, using some of the finger puppets I have on hand.  I tried really hard to find a small finger puppet snake, but I had to settle for a rubber one instead.  I found this cute box at the Dollar Tree and shoved my little animals in there (verrry tight squeeze!)  I'm going to have my eye out for a bigger box.

In telling the story, I just repeated the refrain from the book using the animals I chose.  It's a flexible way to tell it, and you can use any animals you have on hand.

I wrote to the zoo to send me a pet
and they sent me ____________!
He was too _______ , so I sent him back.

(you end with a dog - who is "perfect!" and you keep him!)

Flannel Friday is the fun we are having today - you can read about it here

Loons and Quines is our host for the day.

And Pinterest, of course, is the place for the best Flannel Friday eye candy!


  1. This is a lovely (and practical) re-telling of the story. It's great to be reminded that we should use what we already have. Thanks for sharing it with us this week.

  2. Love the box. I've been doing it this way for years, but am shamed to admit all I've done is pull the toys/puppets for a bin. Will have to make my own box for next year!
