This week I made a felt story set to tell Henny Penny, the story of a hen who gets hit in the head with an acorn and thinks the sky is falling. She decides to tell the king, and on her journey is joined by Cocky Locky, Turkey Lurkey, and Ducky Lucky (normally there is also Goosey Loosey but I just realized I forgot to make her! Oh well). They happen upon Foxy Loxy who tries to trick them so he can eat them! In some versions, he succeeds, but I’m feeling kind so I will let my animals escape. Either way, the king is never told that the sky is falling.
