Joyful Puppets

Joyful Puppets

When one wants to prepare paper puppets, first children take a coloured paper pad and fold it into an accordion pleat. We stick the upper part with a tape, and unfold the lower one. A girl has already a dress. In a boy we cut a lower part of an accordion pleat to its half and we form shoes. At its back we stick a toothpick. We draw mouths on a technical pad and cut them out. Then we stick toothpicks. The last activity is to stick straight hands in the middle of puppets. They wonderfully prove themselves for plays in a theatre.  Children may draw different faces for their puppet-joyful, sad, surprised, angry, etc.
