The best part was getting to make the actual puppets. I used to work a lot with cut paper in my own artwork. As I’m sure many of you can understand, it’s hard to find time to create my own art while juggling a full time job and two little boys. So, it was a lot of fun to get the Exacto knife out and make silhouettes of characters from different fairy tales. It’s meant to come across as campy and funny, so I hope the students enjoy it. I think it will be a great addition to the fairy tale themed 2nd grade DVD.
