Fantastic Finger Puppets to Make Yourself: 25 Fun Ideas for Your Fingers, Thumbs and Even Feet!

Author(s): THOMASINA SMITH

Children's Books | Non-Fiction

Have toys at your fingertips - and on your toes - including angels, aliens, a peacock, an octopus, a mermaid, a waltzing couple and a goofy horse. How to make perfect puppets from old socks, rubber gloves, cardboard, kitchen foil and ping-pong balls, as well as puppet stages on which to perform! Easy instructions and over 270 fantastic photographs show you what to do every step of the way. It is ideal for 7- to 12-year-olds, with simple projects for beginners, and more sophisticated projects for older kids. Watch your hands transform into birds, animals, flowers, forests and all sorts of other amazing characters. The 25 projects in this book include not only finger puppets, but also glove puppets, body-pained puppets, and even foot puppets. All the projects are simple and fun to do, and you can make them using everyday items found around the home, such as gloves, socks, ribbons, wool, buttons, beads and drinking straws. Then, why not use your puppets to make up stories with your friends?
The rubber-glove fishermen could catch the painted octopus, the Tassel family could attend the wedding of the cardboard bride and her bridesmaids, and the glove-puppet elephant could meet the sock serpent. The book also contains ideas for making stages and scenery for your puppet shows, including an enchanted forest setting and a sailing boat.
