Art and Craft Puppet Camp in Glen Flesk Gaa!



Last week we ran a puppet summer camp in Glen Flesk GAA Hall.

We had 10 children participating from age 4 to 13, and it was a 5 day program. We started the week by making puppets from papier mache, then we painted them the next day, and decorated them with various craft materials. There were all sorts of creations, from unicorns to aliens, dogs, cats, horses and a couple of bad guys!

Then everyone got into groups of 3 or 4 and wrote a play starring their newly made puppet, then each group made scenery for their play which they used as a backdrop on our puppet theater. We rehearsed each day and on the Friday put on a production for parents.

In between all that the participants each baked and decorated  a cake, painted a T Shirt and made a Chinese Dragon….so it was a very full week!

There are more pictures on our web site, and also details of oil painting work shops with Tina which are running next week in KDYS Killarney. Phone 085 7773538 for more information.
