“Paperhand Puppet Intervention: A Drop in the Bucket (Forest Theatre)—One of the strongest shows in Paperhand’s 16 years of puppet pageants reminded us of what the I Ching calls the taming power of the small. Adults revisited the vivid worlds of imagination they knew as children, tiny towns raised their political voices, and a chorus of owls asked gentle, insistent questions about our future. Jennifer Curtis’ soundscape was a bonus.”
A part of our People Who Help Us Range, this zoo keeper hand puppet from The Puppet Company makes a great gift for a child, which can be used as a general toy or as a prop for storytelling.
When making the mouth of a hand puppet, use a contrasting colored felt. Make a hand puppet mouth with tips from a crafts enthusiast in this free video on children's crafts.
Through our annual summer performance, Paperhand Puppet Intervention helps create a community that shares picnic blankets, ideas, experiences and a love of wonder.
