Puppet Theater by Melissa & Doug


If your family is into theatrics, this toy will take center stage. A puppet theater, like this one by Melissa & Doug, will become a venue for hours of puppet fun. Puppets stimulate speech and learning and help babies, toddlers, and even school-age children learn about grown-up life. You can buy puppets representing all kinds of animals and people, or you can make your own puppets, like Santa, Rudolph, and a penguin.

Don't be afraid of fats! Healthy fats, like those found in nuts, avocado, or cheese, make great lunch additions or snacks, and will help keep your child full until the end of the school day.
