Creative Puppets

One way that I obtain some really cool puppets is to keep my eye open for unusual stuffed animals. All you have to do is unstuff them, receate the mouth area a little bit and you’ve got an awesome puppet! [For easy makeovers, look for stuffed animals with a mouth that is already separated–has top and lower jaws. You can insert a sleeve to hold the stuffing in place in the area where you are going to put your arm through. You can also put pieces of matte board in the top and lower jaws, like a regular people puppet would have, if you want the jaws to hold their shape.]
