Puppets for Haitian children

As you may recall from Joanna's email, Caroline Richarson, Max's mother, is trying to go down to Haiti as a member of a U-M medical team. Caroline said she would be able to bring a few small, light things with her to give to children in the hospital.

Today, I talked to our class about what we could do. I suggested paper bag puppets since they had enjoyed the ones they made so much. All the children agreed it was a fabulous idea. While they were creating the puppets we discussed what kind of things might cheer up you up if you were in the hospital. They decided they shouldn't be scary but should be funny. As you can see from the photo, the puppets are full of smiles, hearts, stars, and cheer.
