Meet Olivia! She is just one of the brilliant puppets created by Year 3 pupils during my 4 day residency at QEGS Junior School. We worked with a variety of found objects I had collected to inspire characteristics of puppets, notice the pan lid handle for a hat and pistachio shells for ears, eyes and nose.
The quote of the week came from one pupil at the end of day one: "With your imagination you can make anything happen". This comment inspired the gift we made to pass on to Hemsworth Arts & Community College...The Imagination Tool Box
Here are some photos of the gift making process
