Tortoise Hand Puppet
‘I’m a Turtle’
I’m a turtle and I waddle and crawl so very slow
I can’t be speedy, that’s the fastest that I can go
People say that I am lazy but that’s not true
As you can see I carry an entire house right on top of me!
Words by Joe Stover
The base of the puppet is made with eco-friendly jute and the shell which is lightly stuffed is made with cotton fabric. Hand embroidery embellishes the shell . The eyes are hand embroidered. Fully safe for children. A great asset for teachers and parents at story telling time. As every puppet is hand made, each one is unique.
