Have you ever heard of the Fandango Puppets? (I'm sure most of you have....) They are these great paper bag puppets from the Movie company Fandango that are designed with unusual items such as candy, pasta, straws, licorice, fruit pieces, and more....!!! Check out there website here to watch some of their videos. I remember first seeing these puppets on movie posters at the theater and later in the commercials and I always felt compelled to make puppets in this style. Cassie and I tried our hand at making these puppets and here is how they turned out. What do you think??? Keep reading to find out how you can make A FANDANGO Bag Puppet Online!
Here are some actual Fandango Puppets. Aren't they great? The idea for these puppets came from creative director Len Fink whose many credits include the Coca Cola Polar Bears. The puppets are made by artist James Hayes who has designed for the Jim Henson Company (The Muppets!) No wonder I like them so much!!!
To create these puppets we gathered lots of cool items such as pasta, candy, shredded paper, beans, fabric, bottle caps, yarn and paper bags, of course! For the lips we used construction paper.....which seems to be a definitive feature on all the Fandango Puppets. We used glue and scissors to add all the items.
C having fun with the variety of materials!
This is C's puppet. She used orange noodles for her hair and cheerio eyes! Can you see the resemblance? Do not do this project when hungry because she wanted to eat all the treats!
