Lately all Sofi wants is for us to make puppet shows for her with her cats. We run out of ideas rapidly: sometimes we recap the story of the day, sometimes I tell little fables with morals (much like her episodes of Kai-Lan), but lately (and I got this idea from Bill) I've been acting out the Hobbit and just started into The Fellowship of The Ring.

I feel a little guilty that when she's old enough to enjoy them for the first time they'll have already been spoiled...but on the other hand I don't remember a time when I didn't know what the story of The Hobbit was, so these books do hold up on the re-telling...

You could just do stuff she's less likely to see or read. Maybe some of your favorite Trek episodes, 20K Leagues Under the Sea, stuff like that :)

My Mom did this, telling goodnight stories using the Dragonriders of Pern series as the basis.

I didn't realize it until I was well into the series, and didn't remember enough details to make it any sort of spoiler.
