Karalyn had an assignment to do a book report on Florence Nightingale. For her presentation she had to make a puppet out of a Styrofoam ball and two sticks and whatever else she could find, her teacher said to be creative. Since she had her arm in a cast, I had to help her with it. I don’t think she thought I knew what I was doing. When we were in the store picking out materials I told her that I had made Styrofoam people before…and I tried to get her to remember something I had made, but she couldn’t. So I told her she was just going to have to trust me.
So, what do you think? Karalyn told me I should start making dolls.
I am not good at sewing anything so everything, most everything on the puppet is pinned together with stick pins.
We used: two styrofoam balls, two wooden dowels, brown yarn, google eyes, white material, glue, red ribbon, flesh colored material, and I made a little book out of card stock…and stick pins.
Now I hope she gets a good grade on this project.
