The 6 year old love of my life has a wonderful school teacher who has been capturing the class's imagination with her promotion of puppets and theatre. My little dude came home one day all aglow with the idea of making hand puppets.
So we pulled out the bin of felt, grabbed some scissors and came up with these 2 creatures (plus a dog, a ninja, a zombie and a skeleton - did I mention that I have a boy child...)
In his robust enthusiasm for our above finished products, he took a few to school (not the zombie, skeleton or ninja I might add...) and alas the entire class thought these were pretty cool. "Mom, can you make one for everyone???"
With his teacher's permission, we came up with the idea of a puppet station, manned by me, where each child could visit and make their very own creation. My son and I developed our own very technical pattern...
And I sewed and sewed until late last night...creating 22 blank canvases one for each child to develop into their very own character.
Now we are all ready for a puppet day at school next Tuesday. Pretty excited! Love it when my little dude gets all bubbly about a creative project - I can just see the wheels-a-turnin'.
Linking up with Finish it up Friday at Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF at Quilt Matters.
Happy Weekend all!
