This was a fun adaptation. A very nice volunteer gave me a horse puppet. I cut a hole inside his mouth and sewed a sock inside. I cut small plastic orange pieces that I call "carrots" and ask the children to feed the pony. The toys travel down the sock. This is a fun diversion to use with fussy kids. It is also good activity to promote language,especially if you make a variety of food items to feed the pony and then try to have them say "yum yum yum". Some children can also doing this game while on their belly (prone over the horse's barrel).
