Back in June, we had the opportunity to run a workshop at Tuckahoe Elementary School in Arlington, teaching third graders to make puppets out of recycled materials. The entire grade level participated and had a great time experimenting with fabric, cardboard, plastic and feathers. Here are some of the masterpieces they created.
A family created out of an old glove.
Cutting and gluing a face.
A penguin made from egg cartons and fabric.
So many materials and colors to choose from!
This student created a Miss Pom-Pom with a bow.
A very cool frog!
This was a very original design–a monster made from a bag, with little monsters that can be animated through the glove!
