'PUPPET PLAYMATE'-SOCK PUPPET MAKING ACTIVITY-CLASS V (03-06 MAY 2021)
‘Puppets can say things that humans can’t-Nina Conti’
Puppetry is an ancient art first recorded in Greece. It encourages story telling through craftsmanship. The students of Class V engaged in a very creative sock puppet making activity. The activity aimed at designing small puppets to tell a story. Instructions were given to make puppet playmates using a sock, colour paper, buttons, wool etc. The activity was suggested keeping in mind the availability of materials at home.
Under the guidance of their parents, students presented innovative and unique puppets, some denoting themselves and their siblings, the others animal puppets. Some students came up with the idea of a puppet theatre which was quite impressive. This project helped develop visual and kinaesthetic abilities of the students through an ancient art form.
