As our main writing focus this term has been narratives, we decided to create puppets for our lead characters.
The requirements for our puppets were that they would be made from readily available items and that they would be a true representation of our main character. They needed to show the visual qualities of our characters and, in some way, demonstrate behaviour that our characters would typically display.
We LOVE writing with our puppets close by as they are a source of inspiration and creativity.
Stop by in the next two weeks to read excerpts from our writing and to see some guest appearances by our characters/puppets.
Can you recall your most favourite character that you've ever created and written about?
Have you made a puppet before? What was he/she made of?
Or, if you were to make one, how would you create him/her?
