With Crayola® Gel Markers, dress up plain lunch bags. Turn them into glittering royal puppets. Put on a fairy-tale show fit for a king.
When the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz sings "If I were King of the forest…," he has lots of ideas about what life would be like if he ruled the kingdom. When reading fairy tales or hearing the news, ask students if they ever think about royal life? Being king or queen does have a lot of appeal. Why do you like the idea? Being boss? Wearing a crown and lots of jewels? Invite student groups to research well-known royals from ancient or contemporary times.
Students get ready for royalty with these regal-lineage hand puppets. With Crayola Scissors, cut out regal puppet faces from bright paper. Keep lunch bag folded through the puppet construction. Attach paper face to the bottom of an upside-down bag with Crayola Glue Sticks. If puppet is to open its mouth, the face shape must overlap the bag’s bottom and main part. Cut the shape in two so that some of the face rises up and some stays down when you put your hand into the bag and open the fold with your fingers.
Draw facial features with Crayola Gel Markers. Place the puppet’s mouth where the bag splits apart. Draw teeth and a tongue inside the fold.
Cut two long rectangles of construction paper for puppet’s arms and sleeves. Glue to bag’s side folds. Fashion hands at the end of the sleeves.
To make curly hair and beards, squiggle marks on a small paper square. Fold into a fan. Cut small strips across folds, leaving one end uncut. Slightly unbend folds. BOING!!
Cut out paper pieces for royal clothes and crowns. To add designs, cover paper clothing with dots or patterns. Construct jewels by folding paper and adding marker lines. Remember, there are royal personages all over the world, and they dress very differently. Some live in Africa and Asia. There is royalty of old in South and Central America. Attach all extras with glue.
Students poke hands up into the bag top. Move bottom fold so puppets can issue royal commands. Classmates combine puppets for a royal fairy tale show!
