Good Grief Goodwill

Posted by lbbartolomeo on June 27, 2012

UPDATE to the below post.  Here is how I made the puppet that the MK8 lister described .  Here’s the link to the archived message although joining the MusicK8 listserv and reading all the posts is AWESOME.  So many great ideas.

Made the slit and pulled stuffing out of the body and part of the head.  Left stuffing in the nose and legs.  We’ll see how the kids respond to having it there.  It may all be out eventually.  : )

Since it’s not on my summer to-do list, I’ve decided to go to Goodwill today.  I have a route of 4 of my favorite Goodwill stores.  And Wednesdays are SENIOR CITIZEN days!!!  And according to Goodwill, I AM a senior citizen because I’m older than 55.  Well that’s the rule here in central Indiana.  I get 30% off.  I am going to look for stuffed animals.  The newest hint on the MK8 listserv,  was from a teacher who takes stuffed animals and makes a slit in the back, takes all the stuffing out and POOF you have a puppet.  Kindergarteners and first graders will do anything with a puppet on their hand.  They keep the beat, sing, move creatively.  Well, off I go.  I swear just yesterday I was 18.

  1. Do you sew around the hand opening??????

    • Janet, I did not sew around the opening. The material wasn’t one that would ravel so I left a raw edge! It was such a simple way to get a hand puppet. Thanks for asking about it!!!
