Interactive Hand Puppets

In this workshop we create interactive puppets from socks and other recycled materials combined with LEDs, buzzers and small electronic outputs which will give life to the craft.

The children will receive a sock to make the puppet skeleton (like a mitten) and they will be offered other electronic and non-electronic materials to create the interactive puppet based in different examples to give them a sense of what they can make.

They will learn simple interactive electronic tricks, for example, putting LEDs in the eyes of the puppet and lighting them when it closes the ‘mouth’ or make a sound when it’s open, get some output interacting with another puppet, etc…
