Superhero spoon puppets

In support of diversity we painted the wooden spoons with acrylics and once dry displayed them in a slice of tree - the bore holes were made with a 12mm flat head drill bit
. Use a small wicker basket to hold a variety of fabric strips and dress-up each spoon as wished.

Comic style speech 'explosions' can help to introduce language, congratulating the heros on a rescue well done!
