Last night I got an inspiration to create puppets. I suggested it today, and it was a huge hit, even before we had any decent supplies to create them. Felicity created the one shown here with very little help. The idea of putting it on a paper bag, and help stapling were all that was contributed. She did all the drawing and creative stuff.
Kwamai made several sock puppets, including Batman, Robin and ghost, and a cardboard sheriff and pacman character.
This afternoon Kwamai invited a friend over to show the puppets off, and while the friend preferred to build with legos I can see that this puppet idea is one with a lot of mileage to it.
I plan to make a Patrick Henry puppet, and other generic dudes that can assist in reenacting historical scenes.
