In "Creating Home," a Tapestry of Faith program
Gather the children at worktables. Invite them to make their own puppets. Tell them they can use the puppets to pretend to be characters in the story, "How Coyote Stole Fire."
Distribute Handout 1, Coyote Finger Puppets. Help the children name each of the six characters: Coyote, a Fire Being, Squirrel, Chipmunk, Frog, and Wood.
Invite children to begin coloring the puppet figures. Visit each child and offer to help cut out their puppets.
Demonstrate how participants can use glue sticks to attach the figures to the cardboard roll segments, and then secure the figure to the cardboard with clear adhesive tape.
Allow the children time to play with their finger puppets. Invite them to act out parts of the story.
Give each child a copy of the story to take home, along with their finished finger puppets and materials to complete unfinished figures at home.
