It is the mother of invention.
One of the puppet programs we will be putting on this evening involves a snake (no, it has nothing to do with the Garden of Eden). We had a beautiful snake puppet–but when practice time came around it was nowhere to be found.
So this morning I got an old sock, a pair of wiggly eyes (normally I do not like the kind that wiggle…but in this case they seem to go well) a business card (to give some firmness to the mouth) and a plastic cup (from whence come the teeth), and voila! A snake puppet.
