Lotsa bottle



This is my first fly past the plastic bottle buddie target. As I have to reproduce it thirty three times with the kids I'm trying to find something that doesn't involve huge amounts of preparation. As it is, this would need one hundred and thirty two hip and shoulder joints and a lot of sawing of cardboard tube! I think he has more potential in the prone position as a fantasy animal. Different head, coat of emulsion, a few black spots and Cruella de Ville would be pleased to call him Pongo.
In fact, memories of Watch with Mother, the Woodentops and the biggest spotty dog you ever did see. Who remembers?

Oooh, I remember Spotty Dog and the twins.... THough my favourite was Rag, Tag and Bobtail!

Love the bottle puppets, Grumpy - what a super idea. There's got to be loads of things to do with the dreaded plastic bottles - punching holes and using paper fastener joints or cut-out plastic or old buttons sewn on in pairs, one either side... A soldering iron would make holes quickly if used by an adult maybe....

I want to come to this lesson!
