Abraham's Three Visitors
Pocket Folder Puppets
To make this exciting on-the-go puppet stage:
If the inside is white like ours was, glue a large piece of blue construction paper to the inside for the sky and a strip of tan paper on the pocket section for land. (This could be adjusted for many other stories. Light blue sky, dark blue water. Black sky, tan land. So many options!!)
We made the characters and scene using a Cricut machine. I glued the people to popsicle sticks but did not glue the very bottom of the people to the stick. This allows the people to stay put better. The people are placed with their feet on the outside of the pocket and the stick on the inside of the pocket. (See the second picture where Sarah is being inserted into the picture.)
The children enjoy manipulating the pieces and retelling the story. Then to store everything, just put the pieces in the pockets and close the folder!
I plan to make several different versions of this project!
