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:
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
Cat Felt Puppet
I’ve go blisters on my hands and my back is sore from putting this thing together, but now I can’t wait to paint this and even use my oil paints again. I should really have read the instructions before putting hinges in, I’m not a man! I failed to read the instructions that said to drill a hole before screwing, and I swore and broke my hands and kicked and almost gave up. Everything went so much smoother after I bothered to read the directions. Lesson learned. Hopefully.
