Students began this project by brain storming what professions they could base their glove puppet on. Students sketching out how their puppet character would look, keeping in mind what they would needed to include in order for their profession to be clear to the viewer. They also considered physical characteristics when designing the head including hair style and assessories. They had a great imagination as a class and came up with a wide variety of professions from chefs, wizards, artists and doctors to mention a few.
The heads were made from Papier Mâché and painted. The rest of the puppet was made from fabric which they hand sewed using the sewing machine. The limbs were stuffed with filling from pillows. They embellished the puppet with all knids of accessories. The students enjoyed this project and were very proud of their work. I think you’ll agree they did a great job.
