- Make up your own frame story. Make it into a book, or just tell it using your stuffed animals as props.
- Visually accomplish the idea of a frame story by finding objects you can nest together. Put smalled bags into larger and larger bags, smaller boxes into larger and larger boxes, etc. Have your child experience the fun of unwrapping each layer to find the next, and put a surprise inside the smallest container.
- Provide your children with all different shapes and colors of foods (carrot sticks, raisins, kiwi slices, cooked noodles, olives etc.) and have them create as many of the animals from the book as the can. Encourage them to try making other animals too. Alternately, create different faces with the food pieces and make happy faces, sad faces, scared faces, etc.
