Illustrated Children’s Books – “Jeanettie”

It is Jeanettie’s family’s hope that someday everyone will treat each other equally and that the disabled will not be labeled as retard, cripple, dummy, or even noticed that a disability exists. The truth is that whether you’re disabled or not, everyone should be treated with equal respect.

Hand Puppets  by EasyChildCrafts.com

Materials:

  • A printer–our template comes in pdf form
  • Construction paper, white printer paper or foam sheets (which is what we used to decorate our puppets)
  • Pieces of felt or material
  • Scissors
  • Wiggle eyes
  • Glue stick, white glue or a glue gun (adult supervision required)
  • Markers, crayons, colored pencils (your choice)
  • Download Hand puppet template (to the left)

Instructions:

  • Print out the template for the basic pattern.
  • Cut out the template. Pin it to a piece of felt or other fabric and cut out two pieces.
  • Glue or sew the two felt/fabric pieces together.
  • Decorate the other template pieces to your liking using either crayons, colored pencils, markers or colored foam sheets.
  • Use pictures as reference for the placement of the body parts on the hand puppet.
  • Create your own unique creature or person puppet.
  • That’s it….let the glue dry before you start playing and performing with your puppets!

Activities for puppets:

  • Act out a storybook and create a new ending.
  • Practice script to preform as a puppet play.
  • Watch YouTube videos of puppet plays for example.
  • Go to see a live puppet show.
  • Explore joke books to learn new jokes to use in your puppet skits.
  • Construct your own puppet theatre. Appliance boxes work really well.
  • Start a collection of puppets and define the personality traits they will protray in plays.

Progress on Jeanettie Books…

I thought it was time for a new post. And why not post how I am doing on the Jeanettie books! I know I have already given info on the first two books previously. I am having fun on the last 4. I am trying new things with the compositions, and playing with patterns in photoshop and using more detail to complete the illustrations. The detail is what takes the longest…but its also what makes the illustrations more engaging! Take a look! 🙂

Both of these spreads are from “Jeanettie Learns Mommy is Handicapped Too” by Charlotte Blackmore Lozano
