Festivus Miracle #14: Reindeer Puppets

We attended an open house at the Conservatory of Puppetry Arts on Sunday. They had a cute, little exhibit of puppetry throughout the ages and a display of holiday puppets. The had hot cider, cookies, and a handful of bazaar tables where one could buy puppets, dolls, jewelry, and miscellaneous other stuff.

My favorite part was the reindeer puppet craft table. With cardboard tubes, some brown paper for ears, googly eyes, a fuzzball, some yarn, string and pipe cleaners, we were able to make these simple marionettes. (Mine is the one on the left. Andrew's is the short one on the right.) This was the best part of the afternoon for me. We've made so many crafty things this year between this and the Getty. I'm not sure what we're going to do with them since they aren't built to withstand dogs. It was a Festivus miracle anyway.

Insert gratuitous holiday dance picture.
