We made Pete the cat stick puppets from Making Learning Fun. I gave the kids a choice between pom pom buttons or pre-cut paper ones. The pom pom ones were very popular!
We had a great group this morning and lots of preschoolers. After seeing babies & toddlers so much lately, these kids seem so much bigger to me now!
