Popsicle stick puppets



Clementine and I made popsicle stick puppets on the front porch today
and I'm kind of in love with them.
If it looks like I did most of the drawing, I did. But not all. And she did a lot of the coloring. 





I am deeply in love with Berol Prismacolor colored pencils. The BEST.
Forget crayons. Prismacolors are so much more rewarding. C's hand-eye skills are crazy, and I think it's partly from drawing and coloring with colored pencils.
(And playing with teeny stuff in her dollhouse from when she was wee.)




I totally want to make more! 




Here's the back. Nothing fancy.




We've started doing more crafts, and this was a quickie. I hope to use more of her original drawings next time, if I can keep her interested.

Oh yeah, and there's this guy, dragonfly bunny auntie :-)

Lovely! This looks like too much fun--you've just inspired me to go buy some colored pencils for myself :)

Oh my goodness those are awesome and so much cooler than the ones you pinned.

Those are adorable! I may have to see if I can talk my girls into making some with me, though they'll probably think they are too old. :)

I know this is off topic, but when is the new "Dreamdark" book comeing out?

Makes me think of the big marionette in "Daughter of Smoke and Bone"! Lovely!

Kate said...

Haha! So cute! They're awesome! Thanks for the idea! :) And the tips on the colored pencils! :)

I'm 100% in agreement on Berol Prismacolor pencils. From the moment my kids took over my personal Prismacolors and I watched in amazement the difference in how they used color, I believe strongly that kids should have access to real art mediums if at all possible. However, I admit that just a few months ago I picked up a 64 box of crayons on a whim and just set them with all the art stuff. When my son found them you'd have thought it was Christmas. He yelled to my daughter, "We have CRAYONS!" I sort of felt bad until they pretty much only used them long enough to try out each color, then it was back to the prismacolor pencils and watercolor crayons.
