The Muppets Make Puppets Cheryl Henson
A kit that shows children how to create over 35 puppets using stuff from around the house - with a little help from the googly eyse, fuzzy fur and other items included. With a humorous commentary from Kermit the Frog, they explain the secrets of personality, and how to build it with the right eyes, ears, hair and clothing; how to have fun with voices and movements; and how to operate hand puppets, rod puppets and string puppets. The authors introduce their cast of characters, with instructions on how to make them, including Dixie Dragon (principle ingredient, a sock), Jughead (small plastic jar), Spidey Jones (old work glove), Metalmouth (bandage boxes) and Princess Esterrilla (wooden spoon and chopsticks). It gives tips on writing a puppet story, building different puppet stages and putting on a show.
