Everyone can be a player with these sporty Model Magic® hand puppets. These glove and rod puppets are stars!
Students share their favorite sport with the class and design their own team of athletic puppets! Try either one of these ways to create puppets.
To make glove puppet: Form Crayola Model Magic into a puppet head-sized ball. Stick your ring and middle fingers into the bottom of the head so it stays on your hand. Shape a face. Poke in some parts and add modeling compound for eyes, nose, and mouth. Form ears and forehead. Air-dry the puppet head.
If you want a shiny puppet, seal it with a glue mixture. Here’s how: Cover the art area with recycled newspaper. Mix equal amounts of Crayola School Glue and water in a foam produce tray. With a foam brush, cover the dry Model Magic. Air-dry the coating.
Using Crayola Fabric Markers, decorate the front and back of a recycled glove. Make it look like a player’s uniform. Slip the head on your gloved fingers. You’re ready to put on a show.
To make rod puppet: Follow Step 2 to form a puppet head. Poke a small wooden dowel or Crayola colored pencil into the head (like a neck). With more Model Magic, make two athletes’ hands large enough to hold sports equipment. Poke a dowel in each hand. Air-dry the head and hands.
If you want a shiny puppet, follow step 3.
Cut fabric for the player’s jersey with Crayola Scissors. Poke a small hole for the neck to fit through. The material will hang like a poncho, with arms on sticks coming out of the sides.
With Fabric Markers, design the sports jersey with numbers, name, and designs. Slip dowel through fabric. Wrap a rubber band around the fabric inside the neck to hold the uniform in place.
Work your rod puppet with two hands, one holding the head stick and the other working both hand sticks. It takes some practice!
Use Model Magic to form sports equipment for your players, such as helmets and balls. Make their sizes match the puppets. Air-dry the sports equipment before re-enacting the big game!
