Dancing Puppet

Let’s create a puppet- one that can dance! Together we are going to create a puppet that has whatever characteristics you like. The puppet could look like you or someone you know, or have wild colors on all it's arms and legs. We know that sometimes it can be scary to dance around people, but the dancing puppet isn't bashful AT ALL. When it hears music, it has to move.
