SHOP NEWS ~~~ for In Joy Eco Cutie! Puppets!
There is a little story around these puppets...of course...always a story!
Decided to create another nephew for the family...stayed home and had my son! Of course, puppets were a part of his growing up. We had a lot of fun, even had a puppet theatre. When my boy started school I became a substitute teacher at his elementary school. I had a LOT of fun doing that job! Being a substitute is a lot freer than being a teacher (who I bow to with GREAT respect). No staff meetings and some allowance for my eccentric "ways". I had a reputation for dressing like Ms. Frizzle of The Magic School Bus.
Oh yeah...PUPPETS! I devised a way of getting super wonderful behavior out of a class...usually. I had my "Super Secret Substitute Teacher Suitcase" an old fashion suitcase filled with PUPPETS and surprise craft supplies. I would start the day telling the class that every time they worked well together or follow directions they would get a "Good Job" tally on the board. When a couple were earned they would get to have quick peek in the suitcase. This would continue throughout the day until the end and the puppets would be released and I allowed a little mayhem to ensue! Birds and butterflies soaring, fish fights, and flowers in deep conversation! It was fun and I was loved...all the tasks the teachers left were completed too.
So here is a gallery of the puppets from the suitcase. Not too shabby even after all that mayhem and rugged play!
