I ran a team building exercise at work where we all threw our names in a bowl and picked out someone else’s name. Then, we reincarnated each other in the form of a finger puppet. Being the creative group we are, we came up with some charming and hilarious interpretations. It was fun to take a break from the day now and again. In all, the project spanned several days when we had time to craft. It broke up the stress of end-of-year deadlines and unified our otherwise project-oriented (and separated) group.
The basics for this craft:
- buy inexpensive knit gloves (these are from Target) in various colors.
- cut off the fingers and discard the hand
- wrap, glue and sew on cloth, buttons, beads and ribbon. Anything really.
- Have fun!
