I put on puppet shows at daycare centres and preschools. I mostly make my own puppets, but I do have some store bought ones. Here are some of the latest I’ve made. My puppets are sturdy. They have to be because they’re quite abused after each show when I let the kids have a turn. The last time I made them, I made duplicates and I put a few of them for sale on Etsy:
Felt Puppets: rabbit, penguin, bear, giraffe, walrus, bird
Here’s a video of a puppet show rehearsal:
I think on Thursday and Friday my son got to watch about 7 hours of John Deere earth moving machines, Max and Ruby and The Wiggles while I just lied there all sick. But I felt better yesterday and got productive. I made a bonnet and got teased by family members that I was going to wear it. (I do love the regency bonnet era as they all know) It’s a baby bonnet. I also made another pair of baby shoes to match it (since everyone loved the shoes I took to the baby shower last week) and I painted some stranger who offered me some points on deviant art for his portrait. I’m quite cheap! Here are the photos:

You can buy the bonnet and shoes on Etsy here.
Or you can get your portrait made for $30 dollars plus shipping.
We celebrated my son’s birthday this past week-end and we put on a puppet show and we gave all the kids a puppet to take home. Here are some of the puppets we made.
The puppets were so popular that I decided to make another one and put it up for sale on Etsy. https://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/franciart

I went to a baby shower today and I made these cute little shoes this morning. I can’t really say how long they took to make because I was constantly interrupted by my son, but they turned out to be easier to make than I thought.
