Dog Marionettes

Updated: May 8

Materials found around the house can become planters, bird feeders, decorations and more! Reusing everyday objects engages critical thinking and problem solving skills as students reimagine how items can be repurposed. While these simple reuse projects alone won't save the world (we can only reuse so many bottles, egg cartons and coat hangers...) they will create a habit of seeing discarded materials as valuable resources, changing waste management and consumption habits across a lifetime. The projects cost next to nothing and provide 40 mins of creative distraction!


Today we're making Dog Marionettes! They look a little like this:




Special thanks to Frances for joining our Craft A Long in May where we made these together and sharing this video with us of her marionette, Fluffy-Gus, in action!
