Team Time
A Puppet head
You can use an old tennis ball which has lost its bounce, to make the head of a puppet. She looks like a little girl in a skirt and is very quick and easy to make. Look at the picture carefully and you will see how she works – your fingers are her arms!
You need –
a tennis ball, needle, wool, coloured cloth.
Method –
1. Start with the head. Make a small hole in the ball and push a long, thick knitting-needle (about size 3), into it.
2. The needle goes in on one side and right across inside the ball to touch the opposite side.
3. The hole needs to be very small, so that it is difficult to push the needle in. In this way it will fit tightly and remain firm when you play with your puppet.
4. Now cut the thick top off an old nylon sock and stretch it tightly round the ball, sewin it together down the back.
5. Take some coloured wool and stick on the ball. Make plaits. Paint the eyes and lips on the ball.
6. Cut two holes in the coloured cloth to put in your fingers.
7. Hold the needle in your hand to hold your puppet
Ans. I have a lovely puppet.
It dances beautifully in the puppet show
