muppet inspired puppet storage



This is one of my favourite makes, which may seem funny, as it doesn't look like much: an opped frame,  some cardboard, paint and paddle pop sticks... (oh, and some papier mache clay made from toilet paper, which you fortunately can't see...)


but it holds all our finger puppets (well, there's one space free, and I know at least one or two are missing - where are you, Mr Pigeon? - so almost all might be more accurate!), and it makes me think of the Muppets song every time I see it (which is not surprising given my design was ripped off from inspired by the Muppet Theatre) and I had so much fun designing (and redesigning) it, and making it, and filling it up with puppets...

(and just because I couldn't resist an animation...)

That is sooooo completely adorable, and that's the exact scene that I missed at the movies when 4 little nephews all wanted to go to the loo at once!
