Miffy Puppets: A Story Bag

One thing I remember having to do at Norland was to make a story bag and fill it with props to go with a book. These bags help bring another dimension to story time and let children really become part of the story telling experience. This time I made puppets for one of my Miffy books, that way when I read it to YC she can help act out the story using the puppets.

You will need:

  • Popsicle sticks/straws
  • Paper
  • Scissors
  • A story book

I drew my pictures and then cut them out, however if you feel your drawing skills aren’t up to the task, or you choose a difficult book to draw from then you can always photocopy the pictures and print them out before cutting them out and attaching them to popsicle sticks.


When you read the story let your little one act it out with their puppets, if you have children that don’t like to sit through stories then this can help engage them and get them to listen. You can also leave them out for your little ones if they are having quiet time so that they can re-enact the book.


YC really enjoyed playing around and acting out the story with her puppets. After we had finished reading we spent a while playing just the puppets and making up our own version of the story.

Be sure to follow our Nanny Anita board on Pinterest for more ideas.
