Paper Cup Marionette Construction
Make & Take Construction Workshop
Puppetry is one of the most fascinating forms of the performing arts. For thousands of years, humans have told stories and entertained each other with simple, yet captivating figures. And the magic of the puppet with a group of children (of any age) is a wonder to watch. This basic, fun workshop teaches you how to make puppets using paper cups, construction paper, sequins, and a few scraps of yarn or fabric. The puppets are easy to make, easy to use, and (if necessary) easy to replace. Using these construction methods, a child could build an entire cast of characters in a day. Establish the foundation for a wonderful hobby /vocation! Suitable for most construction skill levels.
