Do you want to create your own puppet show? Blade wants to show you how.
You will need:
Pencials, crayons, paint or kokis
Draw your character's body shape on a piece of cardboard.
Colour it in or paint on the details and clothes.
Cut out the body shape
Bend the feet forward so that they stand flat.
Cut out two strips of paper about 2.5cm wide. Roll them up into tubes to fit your fingers and glue them
so that they won't unroll.
Now find a picture of your favourite cartoon character, pop star, a photo of a friend or draw a funny face.
Cut out the head and glue it to the body.
Finally, glue the paper tubes on to the back of the trouser legs and your puppet is ready to walk.
