She showed the the kids, a 3 year old, two 4 year olds and an almost 6 year old, how to wrap the stem around their fingers and carefully remove it. The kids were left to decorate their puppets any way they wished. She had the kids working away quietly on this craft for fifteen-plus minutes. Thanks Lauren!!! My girls think you are pretty cool.
They loved this craft so much they have been asking to go to the craft store so they can get more chenille stems. I think this was a pretty successful activity! Definitely worth keeping some chenille stems on hand for this one.
