Lots of new ideas for workshop fun in schools and camps, and rainy day activities, in this new book about the construction of puppets. The materials are simple -- potatoes, apples, rubber balls, sewing materials, cloth, etc. -- and most may be found in the pantry or kitchen closet. The number of different effects which may be obtained from using the odds and ends suggested here is quite surprising, and this is the answer to those who would like to make puppets, but who have been frightened away by the intricacies of the professional puppet. Also included -- how to make simple stages, and how to manipulate hand puppets. Just right for pre-junior high activities.
