Fun By The Handful
I broke into my secret reservoir of Clever and Crafty Stuff. On hand: fabric markers, and ready to color hand puppets... everything necessary for a quiet evening at home, while watching a family favorite, Arsenic and Old Lace. We hadn't seen the funny, classic since last Halloween.
While Max and Benjamin snuggled, and ate fresh, buttered popcorn, William, Maria and I began developing characters for a Halloween Puppet Show. We haven't written our play, yet, but it will feature a girl, a witch, a cat, Sir and Lady Bones, and possible the Headless Horseman.
Sir Bones. I say, you are looking dapper. William was the clever one who showed us our puppets could combine two characters in one...
Lady Bones. Mistress, what have you done with Sir Bones?
She is not saying.
Maria went straight to work on her happy witch's alter ego, Angry Witch! We were adding accessories with felt and hot glue.
Salutations, Señor Mouser.
Now, I am off to the craft store for more supplies. Can I bring you anything? Glitter, glue, cheese?
