Once Upon a Book ~ Big Red Barn Puppet Show


Book Summary: The story is very simple. It’s about a day in the life of the animals on a farm. Each animal is introduced as you read about the happens in and around the big red barn.

  1. Make some animal puppets {I used these from DKLT}
  2. Get or make a puppet show stage {We have the Guidecraft Tabletop Puppet Theatre, but you can make one yourself}
We used our pieces for “Old MacDonald” and also a guessing game. I would give out clues/riddles and my little guy would put up the animal he thought was the answer. These pieces would also be good for “Farmer in the Dell”.

That’s it!! Just have fun playing together and acting out the story. Have your little one act out the story as you read it from the book.

Be sure to check back next week for some more fun farm ideas for Once Upon a book!

This is a cool idea. And I'm a newbie at this, but I didn't even know you could buy a premade puppet stage. That makes things a ton easier. Thanks for the suggestion.
