Designing Puppets

When making puppets, first you need to know who your characters are.

Diwali:  Hindu festival of light.  We watched the story of Sita and Raman.  Other characters were Ravana and Hanuman.

Then you need to sketch your character as a puppet, and annotate the sketch.  This helps us decide what resources to use.
