Puppet Making

     Puppet Making: How to make a puppet out of a glove?
       Make a Tortoise
1.       decorate a paper bowl for the shell
2.       cut into the edge to make a place for the head (helps the shell to sit down over the hand)
3.       poke holes in shell on either side of the head
4.       tie an elastic across the opening so that it sits under finger 2 to keep the head in place
do the same at the back to hold the wrist of glove in place

       Make a Hare

1.   sew, glue or velcro glove fingers 3 and 4 together

2.   put glove on to determine best position for thumb and attach thumb behind fingers
      3 and 4

3.   nose can be made with coiled pipe cleaner
4.   glue teeth to back of glove finger 4 so that a slight movement of this finger makes the puppet appear  to talk

A fast, fun way to make a variety of characters for your plays; these easy to make puppets can be as plain or as decorated as you wish.

  • put on a glove
  • two fingers for ears
  • fold three fingers to make the shape of the face
  • glue on some eyes and a nose
  • give it a voice
  • add extra features - teeth, ear colour, tongue, lips
  • ad material to make a body, wings,legs with rods attached for control

Puppet Dialogue

Task objective That all pairs perform their version of the play to the others, and therefore learn by being corrected (by their peers) and by copying them.

1.   Put children in pairs.  They choose who will be the hare and the tortoise.  Using the Hare and Tortoise K Map (used for Simon Says), ask the children to perform a drama of the story.  They can say or do anything except write their dialogue down.

2.  When they have finished (they automatically stop when they have) ask each pair to perform their play for the others.  Do not correct anyone.  Whatever they say is fine, and you will find that the children will correct and help each other.

3.  Vote for the best Hare and best Tortoise.  Winners get chocolates.
