Puppet Making Activity

I grew up watching Sesame Street. I can say that the said creative and educational puppet show somehow influenced me cognitively and emotionally. Who could forget Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, Ernie and Bert and the rest of the Muppet friends? Then after a decade and a half, a home grown counterpart of Sesame Street, the Batibot, was created with Pong Pagong, Kiko Matsing and the rest of the gang. I don’t know the reason behind why Batibot abruptly vanished on TV. It’s sad that my daughter did not get the chance to meet the puppets from Batibot and so are Kuya Bodjie and Ate Shena. I am grateful though that Barney and his team are on the rescue to promote group cooperation and active play to RJ’s generations.

When RJ had this puppet making activity in school, I can’t help but commend her teacher as I know how important puppetry is to children. RJ used hubby’s old sock, yarn for the puppet’s hair, colored paper for the mouth and eyelashes, plastic comic eyes, and old cloth for the puppet’s skirt.

Meet RJ’s puppet (honestly, I don’t know the puppet’s name)


 Hahaha! The puppet looks alive and yes she can sing just like RJ!

In this puppet making activity, the teacher taught RJ and her classmates a creative way of telling stories and songs. It makes learning more interesting while enhancing the kids’ imagination and creativity.

    Oh send RJ’s teacher to my CJ’s class 🙂 That is quite a wonderful activity to come up with. I love that puppet. It’s quite pretty.

    Where do they get the plastic eyes?

  5. Puppets are creative way of learning something new and in a fun atmosphere. Good thing too that I could relate to those programs you’ve enumerated above.

    Hello Rossel! I also grew up with Sesame Street and Electric Company. I love the songs at Sesame Street and I still remember some of those. It was also where I got to learn some Spanish words as well. Just like you I am proud and thankful to be a part of it as it helped me a lot in my English and Music subjects.

    Btw, I just nominated you for the Versatile Award. Do find the time to visit my site and find out why.

    Weeh! cute puppet. I remember Zyc and Ryz were also exposed to puppets in Kindergarten that’s why one day they wanted me to tell a story just how puppets do. They even let my hands hide behind a pillow. 🙂

  8. Oh I just read this post and very much enjoyed how your daughter had to create her puppet for school. What an awesome job she did and totally loved how this indeed was a school project. I am a new follower of your, but from this post can’t wait to read and share more with you as I too am a stay at home mom who blogs 🙂
