With wit and ingenuity, Maija Baric shows how to transform wooden spoons, pieces of string, holey socks, outgrown clothes and other scrap materials into beautiful, durable, and functional theatrical puppets. When your puppets are ready to perform, discover how you can bring them to life. You'll learn to build staging, scenery, and props and how to create sound effects and devise performances. – Your puppet creations will bring real magic into the everyday world. Use them to transform storytelling at home or in the classroom; ease children’s bedtime rituals; and make a birthdays and other occasion truly special. This is a great activity with your children, who will certainly want to create characters and stories of their own.
