Making Puppets

Making a puppet utilizing minimal products is a fantastic ability to have. Particularly on a rainy day when you’re children cannot go outdoors and have nothing to do.

These puppets can be made-well, nearly-in an instant. They call for products that you are sure to have convenient, such as scarfs, lipstick, matchboxes, salad spoons and right and left hands.

With your other hand, draw one of the front corners of the handkerchief up in between your first two fingers. Now do the same with the other edge, drawing it up between the second and third fingers. Wrap the two back edges around your wrist, and you have a bunny with floppy ears and a wriggly nose (your 2nd finger inside the handkerchief).

With a ballpoint pen draw an amusing face on your thumb and curtain a scarf over it. Pull it around in front to hide your hand. You can likewise put a peanut shell on your thumb and draw a peek a boo face on that.

Use a lipstick to color the lower half of your first finger and the upper part of your thumb. Your first finger becomes the upper part of the mouth, your thumb the lower part, and by moving them you can make Jabberwacky talk, whistle and even pretend to chew gum.

You require crayons, scissors and a small brown paper grocery bag. Flatten the bag out and turn it with the open side down. The fold throughout the top will be Bagdad’s mouth and must be marked with a line of bright red. Eliminate 2 white paper fangs and paste them to the edge of the fold, pointing downward. Now draw a button nose and two huge saggy eyes above the mouth. Add paper feelers ahead if you want. Put your hand inside the bag and fit your fingers into the flap. You will discover that by opening and closing your hand you can make Bagdad’s mouth open and close.
