I am a strong believer in a bed time routine. Things seem to go smoother and the kids don't fret over going to sleep. Included in our routine is reading a story. The kids get to each pick one story, we say our prayer, and then tuck them tightly into bed.
One fun thing we have incorporated recently into the routine is storytelling with shadow puppets, thanks to Moulin Roty!
These little puppets cast a whole new light on my kids imaginations. We received the Nighttime Paris Shadow Puppets.
I noticed how durable these little guys were, great for little hands who might be slightly rough with them, at times.
These laser cut black card stock puppets held the wear and tear my kids gave to them. They even have a nice wooden stick so they can handle them properly.
11 characters came in the Paris set, as you can see above it came with buildings all they way to a burglar.
The l'aviateur mysteriux(the mysterious aviator) was my sons favorite and the la belle endormie(the sleeping beauty)was my daughters favorite! My husband and I didn't have a favorite, we were just so thrilled they enjoyed playing with them! Hearing them giggle was so much fun!
We also loved seeing the kids use their little imaginations and make up little funny stories to go along with the shadows. Of course dad and I had to jump in from time to time and add more characters!
This is also great when company comes over, it will keep the kids entertained for hours!
