Free 'Kids Create' Quack & Wabbit video starts today. Make your sock puppet come alive!

Saturday, November 28, 2020

Learn how to make your sock puppet talk and move with tips from the professionals - Quack & Wabbit! (See the link to the library YouTube playlist on the right side of this page.) If you haven't picked up a free sock puppet kit from the library yet, call today to see if they are still available. You can watch a series of puppet-making videos from Quack & Wabbit. The videos really help make each step clear - especially how to add eyes to your sock. Finally, children are invited to the last video, a December 5 performance by Quack & Wabbit of the story 'Mr. Gumpy's Outing', with parts for your puppets in the show.
