So I found this kit to make really cute puppets out of foam. I could just see the boys and me sitting around the table constructing their lions, gorillas and elephants. Then, we would have a really cute, fun puppet show.
Here's what actually happened. I had to put the puppets together, the boys were able to put a few things on them. (the package said 4+--apparently they don't really test them out). Then the boys started their "puppet show." It involved a lot of shooting and puppets ramming into each other. Then, the puppets were able to fly. Finally, the puppets were carried around the house in the toy crescent wrench. Not exactly what I envisioned, but they had a great time.
