Puppets to Love, Puppets to Make Kids Laugh, Make Your Stories Come to Life With PUPPETS!

My son and I went through a puppet phase.  We made about 5-6 human characters.  We stopped for a while, but I think it's time to add to our collection again.
Here are some we made.  It is fairly easy.  We learned how to cut out our own pattern from this website below.  Picking out the colors and the characters is the best part.
I use puppets for my preschool music classes all the time.  They are a BIG hit.

With this puppet, you can insert your arms to make it more real like. 
This one is a lot of fun with the kids.
 So, this time around we will venture out and make animal puppets...
just by adding ears and different noses.  I'll post the latest puppets as we make them.
Now this picture reminds my of how long since its been ... this pic was about 3 -4 years ago.  No wonder I'm getting the itching to bring back the fleece, wiggly eyes, pom-poms and the antique sewing machine that only knows one stitch.
Here is where we learned how to make puppets.
