Hand Puppet Adventures
Who knew that golf club covers AKA golf socks made such great hand puppets? Yep, that’s a red macaw golf sock on Mrs. Sayuri’s arm there with the words Margaritaville embroidered on the side – haha! Her Grandma D found it at our local thrift store and instantly thought it had the potential for being a great puppet.
When I was growing up, my dad had a furry black gorilla head golf sock on one of his clubs in his golf club bag. I loved playing with that thing, although I don’t think I ever thought to slip him on over my hand and make him talk. I wish I had him now – he’d make a great friend for Polly (or Wolly as Mr. Happy Feet calls him), our red macaw golf sock.
We’re currently working on growing our fledgling puppet collection. So far we have a parrot (above), a butterfly and strawberry and flower stick puppets, plus a couple finger puppets. Thinking of looking into possibly crocheting or sewing up some more. A few possiblities are:
Washcloth hand puppets from So You Think You’re Crafty- these are adorable! My fave is the shark.
Bunny Hand Puppets from the Purl Bee – so cute! These are made from felt.
