We have recently added new puppets to the Puppet Theatre in Experience Art Studio (EAS).  Puppets are fun to play with, and fun to make, too!

Have you ever made your own puppets at home?  Follow the visual instructions below to create your own simple sock puppet.  Then you can bring it to the Museum and show us your puppet the next time you’re in EAS! Here’s what you’ll need:

A colorful, clean sock Google eyes Pom poms (large and small in lots of colors!) A [low temp.] hot glue gun A surface at which to work

If you’re interested in learning more about making your own art inspired puppets – keep an eye out for our Family Workshop on creating Surrealist Puppets coming this April.

See you soon in EAS!

Choose some pom poms to be the base for the eyes and glue them on.

Add more pom poms down the back, or wherever else you think your puppet needs some decoration.

Put your hand in the sock, tuck the toe in to be the mouth: Voila! What's your puppet's name?
