Puppet Costume Story: Using You Can Do Anything, Daddy!

You Can Do Anything Daddy Pirate Puppet Costumes (1)

I decided to make costumes for my pirate puppet so I can use it to go along with one of my favorite stories, You Can Do Anything, Daddy! by Michael Rex. This out-of-print story lives through my storytelling, and I’m always looking for ways to freshen it up so I don’t get bored with it myself. I decided to make a series of ponchos to fit over Pirate’s head. I used three 9 x 12 felt sheets: 1 dark brown for gorilla, 1 grey for robot, and 1 green for robot gorilla pirate. I cut a hole in the middle of the sheet that fits over Pirate’s head, then I used fabric paint to decorate the outfits. I can easily manipulate these outfits and place them on top of Pirate’s head while I use the book to read the story:
