Wildlife Puppet Project

I have been leading the puppet project in the schools for a few weeks at this point. As part of the Wildlife Puppet Project,  students choose a local wild animal to make.
This completed fox puppet explores its surroundings.

 The puppet heads are started with paper plates and cups, newspaper and tape.
