Papa Bear, Mama Bear, Baby Bear Hand Puppets

20.PAPA BEAR HAND PUPPET
Make the gruff old bruin exactly as you made Goldilocks, using the basic head shape shown, A. The features are glued on in the same way: eyelids (for Mama Bear), nose, neck piece. Cup the ears, B, forward when gluing them in position. Paint eyes and frowning eyebrows. A straw hat can be added, if you wish, C.

21.MAMA BEAR HAND PUPPET
Her basic head shape might be a bit smaller than Papa's. She need not have such a fierce frown. Add a pink bow between her ears and an apron to her dress to give her that feminine look.

22.BABY BEAR HAND PUPPET
He's just a little fellow, of course, but made just like his papa. He can wear a beanie of crepe paper. The bodies of all three bears can be made of brown paper, wool, felt or actual fur. Their paws, D, are made just like Goldilock's hands.

A Ready-Made Play
Now you have all the characters you need for a complete play about Goldilocks and the Three Bears. There is no need to write out a script; everybody knows the story. Just go through it once or twice, talking it out as you go along and having fun until you are ready to present it to a little group of friends or parents. In this way you can make plays out of many other folk tales and nursery rhymes that we all know; Sleeping Beauty for instance. (The Prince would have the same basic head shape as Goldilocks, but without the braids!)
