Glove Monsters

Don’t you know what to do with old winter gloves? Make these Glove Monster puppets!
Summer wardrobe inventory is one of those times during which you can discover most unexpected treasures at the bottom of a forgotten box.

During my last stocktake I stumbled upon my son’s old winter gloves. They are totally worn off but as you know I couldn't throw them away just like that and I tried to find an ideal use for them. Linda from Craftoholics Anonymous inspired me to prepare puppet performance with her Glove Monsters. I changed those oldies into four monsters and now I’m waiting for my son to write a short script for a play to present to his friends. I’d like to encourage him to incorporate some Bird Finger Puppets into his plot to make the performance even more interesting.

Have you ever prepared a puppet show with your kids? Tell us how they liked it.
