Here’s a lovely eco art project that we’ve created as part of our Kids Art Explorers projects.
This month the Art Explorers are seeing what they can create using natural, outdoor materials. You can browse all the ideas already linked up below, and join in and make something with your own children, but first we’d like to introduce our puppets.
Eco art :: making puppets
Remember the poppy seed heads we had leftover after collecting seeds from the garden? What would you make with them?
And used scraps of fabric from our making box to give them clothes. All the materials for this project are up-cycled and recycled, from the garden and our eco craft supplies.
Here’s Tattercoats transformed into her finery, heading to the ball.
It was interesting to see how the children used the natural shapes of the materials to create their puppet characters. This crooked stem made B think of an old man in need of a walking stick.
L kept her puppets simpler, with no outfits, and created a happy, smiling family. Here they are on a day out in our mini meadow.
