This week we are learning about India in the home school co-op that I participate in.  Since I am teaching that class, I went to postcrossing.com and wrote to someone in each country we will be “visiting” to see if we could exchange postcards.   As postcrossing is a postcard exchange site almost everyone I contacted was happy to exchange cards, and the member in India exchanged souvenirs as well as postcards.  One of the souvenirs was a set of banana leaf puppets.  I looked for information about banana leaf puppets online (I even used google translate to search in Hindi and Urdu) and was absolutely amazed that I couldn’t find anything.

Read the rest (and get the free printable) at randomcreativity.net – sorry for the inconvenience, but I have moved to my own domain 🙂
