5 6 7 Create! is a free series of four short videos for young children (and an adult). It shows you how to make your own puppets from everyday materials. You don’t need anything fancy – just simple things you have around the house like rags, masking tape, and a bit of glue. Then guard your clothes and watch out for your nose, because peg and paper puppets can get up to all kinds of mischief! Our puppeteers don’t just show you how to make a puppet, they will inspire you and the kids to dive into your imaginations to put on puppet shows that will excite awe and silliness in everyone who sees them!
