strange puppets from strange lands

Here's a very different puppet: a giant chicken! Linda teaches puppet building workshops with kids all around Connecticut. These two chickens were made completely of discarded materials, and designed and built collectively with Linda by the students of Common Ground summer camp over three weeks in New Haven. With an old refrigerator box to start with, their marvelous features included feathers made individually by each camper, painted old sheets for a neck, and the ingenious googly eyes made of rotisserie chicken containers. An animal in Luna's Sea has the same eyes-- if you've seen the show you probably know which one!
