 Puppet Parade & Puppet Shows

Everyone come to our Puppet Parade!! In this multi-media workshop will use a variety of materials; modeling clay, fabric, colored foam, paints in a rainbow of colors, glitter, sparkles, googly eyes, plastic jewels and more to make puppets in all shapes and colors. In the last class each student will pick a puppet(s) they’ve made and do a short puppet show. What kind of puppets do you want to make? Will you join our Puppet Parade?? In summer 2016 our Puppet Parade workshops are offered through DPS Extended Learning. Click the link below to learn more and register.

4. Hand puppet in colored foam We’ll use brightly colored foam sheets and our imaginations to make hand puppets like this alien.
Class 1 & 2 Puppet with Moveable Parts In the first class we’ll use modeling clay to make each puppet’s head and hands. In the next class we’ll paint the heads and hands, choose fabric for the costumes and assemble our puppets. We’ll use a variety of media; paint, yarn, glitter, sparkles and more to make each puppet special. See some of the puppets that students have made below.
Class 3 Craft Stick Puppets We’ll make puppets on craft sticks with air drying modeling clay then paint our creations with lots of fun colors. Samples of student craft stick puppets follow below; a running dog, a slithering snake, a bear sitting on top of a pole.

With craft stick puppets the possibilities are endless. Students can go wherever their imagination takes them, then finish their puppets with paint in a rainbow of colors, glitter and sparkles.

5. Puppet Show! In our last class we will set up a small stage. Each student will pick a puppet(s) and do a short puppet show for the rest of the class. What is your puppet’s name? Where does it live? Who are its friends? Has your puppet ever had a big adventure?


Students have made wolf puppets with big paws, robot puppets with pincher “hands”, birds with  colorful wings, flower puppets with faces and leaves for “hands”, rabbit puppets and more.

What kind of puppet would you like to make?
