Making Halloween crafts is a fun way to get children involved in the holiday and making a ghost glove puppet is a fairly fun technique to get them concerned. There are a few other ways you can go about making a ghost glove puppet. Here are some of the concepts that we have come up with of course, with the help of the web.
The first way we found to make a ghost glove puppet is to take a 12 in. square of white fabric or a white handkerchief, three rubber bands, and a black marker. Hold your hand with the three middle fingers together and the little finger and thumb outstretched. Drape the white fabric square over your hand with one of the diagonals running along the apex of your fingers. Fix one elastic band over the middle 3 fingers about where your knuckles are : this forms the ghost’s head. Fix the second band over your thumb and the third over your small finger : these are the ghost’s arms. Eventually, draw a spooky face on your spook and your ghost glove puppet is good to go.
You can also make a spook glove puppet out of a paper lunch bag. First, spray paint or color the bag white. The face of the ghost glove puppet will be the base of the bag that folds over. Draw a scary face on this part of the bag. You can then take and shred the bottom of the bag to make creepy tendrils. Place your hand within the bag and fold your fingers over the bottom to make your ghost come to life!
when you have made your spook glove puppet, it could be a fun thing to draft some form of script to put on a ghostly play. There are a lot of places online that have puppet plays, but it is much more fun to come up with your own story line with the aid of your kid or youngsters. Write the script from the point of view of the ghost. Perhaps he is not like other ghosts and just wants to belong. Perhaps he’s a bad ghost who eventually is taught ways to turn his life around by his buddies. The possibilities are limitless.
when you are using your spook glove puppet to put on a puppet show, ensure that your play has a moral. Stories like these are great methods to teach youngsters about right and wrong. Not only do you show them making by making a ghost glove puppet, but you are showing them the easy way to be creative with the writing of a play.
