I have posted about story bags before and this was another one I put together recently.
Obviously not everything would fit in the bag so I put in three plates, three spoons, the story book, baby bear and a tubberware tub of porridge oats.
I then allowed her to choose the characters from her toy chest that she thought best fit Daddy bear, Mummy bear and Goldilocks. Not only did she enjoy playing with them but she was improving her spoon skills by scooping oats and feeding Goldilocks. These skills are currently very important as she is learning to use her cutlery at the dinner table.
Her wonderful grandmother also made these beautiful finger puppets to throw into the bag.
