“Star Wars Crochet Finger Puppets” is a new crochet-centered activity kit from Thunder Bay Press that will hold appeal to fans of the epic series. The kit comes with all the materials and detailed (80-page) instructions you need to create finger puppets and then entertain children with them. In total, you can crochet ten characters of both Rebels and the Empire orders. Put one on each finger, and then let the battle begin!
This set is extremely reasonably priced at only $19.99 and you can complete every single character with the materials provided so you do not need to purchase any extension kits. The instructions are detailed although crocheting can be tricky and, obviously, anyone who has experience will be able to create these characters much quicker than a beginner. That said, if you want to learn crochet, this is a good kit to start with since it gives you a great end result to work towards.
The kit itself is impressive, but there should be more emphasis put on what can be done with these puppets, once completed. For example, anyone who creates these finger puppets might be encouraged to make videos of puppet shows and send them to the Thunder Bay Press company–and “Star Wars” fan sites–to show off their creations and their imaginations. Various original stories could be acted out via the puppets and this encourages both creative thinking, social sharing, and attainment of the kit that makes all of this possible.
Overall, this is a great kit for anyone who likes to crochet and is a fan of “Star Wars.” Just be aware that, for beginners, crocheting takes some practice. To learn more, see here.
