I Love History

And I love assignments where I get to help my kiddos learn more about history.

But when my youngest came home saying he had to make a paper bag puppet of a historical figure-I was flummoxed.

And then I decided to go wild and be creative. I cut up twine for hair, I cut up an old lace curtain for a jabot, and I cut up a pair of glasses that came complete with a humongous fake nose (sadly, the nose has been lost for a while or I would have used it too).

And I tried to teach my son about Benjamin Franklin...but hey, the puppet looks pretty cool!
