I don’t know where the teacher got these felt puppets from but she said it was a kit that she found tucked away in the back of her closet.
I enjoyed watching the children make their puppets. The children liked having all the different pieces of felt to choose from to design their very own puppet.
I also noticed that the children were able to use just plain glue to get the felt pieces to stick together. I usually do not have much luck sticking felt on felt with glue so this must not be the kind of felt I normally use. Those of you who are crafty out there may be able to tell me more about this material.
The children were particularly fascinated with the mouth of their puppet. They liked choosing a tongue and making it stick out.
I was wondering if there was a way to make these puppets without the kit. I am not much of a sewer but I can perform miracles with construction paper!
In the end the children made a wonderful assortment of puppets to play with. Now all they need is a puppet stage!
