How did Stephanie fit all those puppet characters into one old mitten? The preschoolers were amazed as first a mouse, then a frog and an owl and a rabbit and a fox and a wolf and a great big bear squeezed inside. They really did go in. We all saw their feet and tails disappear. Then the tiny ladybug came creeeping up....put just one teeeny tiny toe inside.... and.... KABOOM!
Puppets flew out into the audience in all directions! Kids squealed and scrambled to catch them, causing temporary chaos.
It was a hard act to follow, Stephanie.
