If you've been following the posts for our puppet-swap, you may have noticed that it's Rhonda who has come up with all the good ideas; first she suggested the puppet-swap (!), next she suggested that we create tutorials for Waldorf-inspired glove-puppets & marionettes, and then she had the idea that perhaps we could each post tutorials so that children would be able to create puppets to add to their mama-made cast of characters. Brilliant idea, Rhonda!!
