We’ve had a cracking time in our classes this week teaching our little Hoglets and their big people how to make finger puppets.
We began with a performance of Milo The Mouse and the Scary Monster by Louis Baum – featuring no less than FIVE finger mouse puppets!
Then, after the essential games and fun, came the exciting part – making our own finger puppets.
It was so great to see parents and children letting their imaginations run wild, and creating some wonderful and outlandish creatures from mere paper and sticky tape. By the end of the day we’d seen not only mice but lions, tigers, crocodiles, dragons, japanese fighting fish, elephants – a whole zoo worth!
Here are a few of the finger puppets created in the class:
