Rajasthani puppet making workshop at kids storytelling art camp

rajasthani puppets

I have these beautiful Indian puppets that hang from strings. we talked about them, drew them and played with them before making our own versions.

I didn’t know how old the children would be when I planned this activity and they were quite small!  lots of 4, 5, 6 year olds, going up to 11 years old. I think its important with kid’s art though to have a balance of activities between making something very impressive, and making something very independently. This activity was the former, as the students needed lots of assistance with cutting, glueing, painting, stapling. However, they were really impressed and proud of their results, continuing to play with the puppets long after, and make stories and personalities around them.
