The Muppets Make Puppets: How to Create and Operate Over 35 Great Puppets Using Stuff from Around Your House Reviews
This is a wonderful book for making simply puppets from easy-to-find items. The pictures are attractive and the book is full of creative ideas. The book teaches how to make multiple types of puppets, including rod puppets, shadow puppets, hand puppets, and marionettes.
Only good for young kids.
Gave it as a gift and my friend is thrilled -- she's very capable with a sewing machine and is going to start making some for her 4 year old. The instructions are very simple even for the novice.
I would recommend The Muppets Make Puppets to puppet-builders both young and old, beginner and advanced. The book contains many creative suggestions of items to use to make puppets, some of which struck me as very original and off the beaten path. Even if you don't end up following these puppet "recipes" exactly (and I don't think that's even the point), they'll give you excellent starting points for creations of your own. Highly recommended.
big hit with my kids great creative ideas
Bought this book originally over 15 years ago and bought a used one to give my grandson for his birthday. Easy puppets using household items, very imaginative and adaptable to what ever you have on hand.
Great book for everyone wanting to make a puppet.
Awesome book. I am well pleased with my purchase.
