this weekend's project

we've secured a sure-fire christmas gift for the niece and nephew this year: a puppet stage! now all we have to do is make the puppets -- homemade ones are sooo much better and we can control just how freaky they are. that is, we can make some really crazy creatures that will inspire actual creative play far beyond the proscribed story lines of dora the explorer, sponge bobby, and the other highly marketed, nickelodeon copyrighted characters.

here is our inspiration so far:

sock puppet one-oh-one
ideas for some specific creatures
other meanings of the term "sock puppet"
other options, not sock, but puppets

the rest of the inspiration will probably come from warm & strong adult beverages, xmas music perhaps, magical cookies, etc... ahh, holiday fun.
