We've come a long way with the kids in my Creative Dramatics class. Since the September we've done a lot of theatrical games, skits and improvisations. And this months we've been focusing on using recyclable materials and our creativity to make hand puppets.
The "old Daddy's sock dog puppets" were a huge success with the children. It was a bit of a challenge to use the hot glue gun and make sure nobody gets hurt. But I got another Mom helper to volunteer and we managed without any problems. I wanted to keep the puppets till next week , but they were extremely excited to take them home and show their creations to Dads.
For the next week they had to promise me to bring them to the class, so we use them for our puppet theater. Let's see how they can keep their promises.
