Sinterklaas is coming! We got out the handpuppets and made them a ship!

We used a big box with smaller boxes inside for the puppets to ‘stand’ on, so they can see over the side.

 

The funnel is made of two kitchen rolls stuck together.  String is attached from the side of the ship to the top of the funnel. The flags are made by folding little paper squares diagonally and sticking them over the string and folding them into triangles.

I cut out circle shapes and C stuck them on for the portholes,

Shape vocabulary came in handy again!
