This is a rough draft of a bear puppet ... that which resembles a child's drawing. The actual puppets will not be made until we receive all the drawings from the children (both classes.)
I think that we will be able to go with the material that this sample has been made from — which was a pleasant surprise! The designs can be drawn on regular white poster board, and then we can back them with a stiffened felt — which should allow lots of "hands on activities" with the kids during practice. All coloring was done with Crayola markers. I think using markers will give the entire set a very authentic look, keeping the texture of a child's drawing.
This puppet took about 8 hours to make from start to finish.
