Family Literacy Despite Winter’s Worst

Literacy Volunteers-Androscoggin’s KAP (Knowledge As Power) families are doing well and we continue to enjoy crafts. This may be one of our last winter-themed crafts—thank goodness!Sue Kap Puppets

The gloves in the picture are thin children’s gloves from Goodwill. They were made into puppets by putting a hand-shaped piece of cardboard—made by tracing the glove itself—into the glove to prevent any bleeding of glue or marker. The decorations included googly eyes, pom-poms, beads, and sequins as well as permanent marker. The puppets can be left on the cardboard hands or taken off and used on the child’s hands. Puppets are a wonderful means of play that encourages language development.
