Puppet Mini-camp - Day 3

The creativity just never stopped. we even gave an encore performance for a mom who was late after we finished the first show. We completed the paper bag puppets and created a few more to fill the gaps in our show scheduled for the end of the day, then we added an extra show to our slate created by a group of the campers and led by Kate Lee. We managed enough puppets to do 4 "shows" 2 longer ones by XX, the original rainforest bird one, and the old favorite 3 little pigs.

Our second set of puppets today were sock puppets. I was able to get cast off socks from friends and my husband to give a good selection of colors to choose from. Cats and unicorns, dragons and horses, lambs and some unnamed creations appeared. The detail the kids put into the puppets was amazing from forked tongues on the dragons or snakes to fangs to pink inner ears, to feathered birds to the wings on the dragon. It was really hard to get them to quit adding so we could do the show!

The Arts mini-camp is held at the Wells Branch Community Library and taught by Dianne Koehler.
