Day 181 - Little Guys and a Puppet
I love playing the great aunt role with my little nephews. This picture makes me smile, because Silas is getting a chance to make us laugh with "Pickles". I've used the giraffe puppet with groups of children for over 30 years. Children in Mexico and Chile, California and Iowa have helped wake him up, by singing into his sleeping bag. But Pickles usually stays on my hand. I learned long ago that sharing one puppet in big groups, is not wise. It was fun letting my nephews take over the puppetry!
Favorite Puppets: My older brother's puppet shows, using his created theatre and marionettes... The 4-foot antique knight puppet my family brought home from Sicily in 1969... A dragon shadow puppet, my in-laws brought me from China... My childhood Rumpelstiltskin puppet, with his cloth face and felt clothes... Sock puppets with button eyes and yarn hair... Pinocchio and Lamb Chop of course...
