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!
