Every year, the 3rd grade puts on a production using marionettes they make themselves. Alex's teacher invited parents to come today to help the kids make their marionettes. Of course, I brought my camera. Alex loved forming the clay for the head, hands and body of his marionette. His marionette is going to be Wilbur Wright of Wright Brothers fame. I love the boots that Alex made...check out those laces.
Next week, the parents return to help paint! So stay tuned for the next step in the marionette-building process.
