Storytelling: The Enormous Turnip



This month I have introduced The Enormous Turnip for storytelling. I did this as a standing puppet play for circle time. As you can see we have a very eclectic cast for the presentation. I managed to make the turnip easily. I made the mouse following directions from the book Felt Craft, by Petra Berger. The story is fun and simple. Here is one version of it. Anytime I do a puppet show for my daughters' they immediately want to present one to me. We will revisit this story more and then they can take turns presenting it to me.

We love this book! What a great way to tell the story. I guess I'm going to have to start needle felting some characters : )

Thanks. I wish I could needle felt successfully. I can stitch with felt , but am unsuccessful with the felting process. I love the needle felted creations on etsy, so beautiful, I hope to purchase some animals soon.
