make a three string Marionette

video
Many years and workshops with children and teachers later it might be a good idea to put it on the blog. Please experiment with it and give your creativity free reign. Think of strips of plastic as a body or paper instead of the fabric. Depending how elaborate you make it, but one hour should create a mighty fine marionette. This could be the start to some shows in the classroom or the neighbourhood.
For loading it on the blog I split it up into four smaller units, it is easier to manage.

You can try a paper cone instead of a tube for a head. Plastic milk bottles were also used over the years, paper cups or just a square box for a 'robot' look.

Attaching the head, it is helpful to staple the string to the top of the head as well.
