Children ages 4-12 created their own ice cream puppet in a youth workshop at the Ormond Memorial Art Museum and Gardens on Wednesday, July 5.
The museum's "School’s Out for Art" workshop celebrated National Ice Cream month.
The children made their puppet friends by wrapping their colored yarn of choice around a Styrofoam sphere to resemble a scoop of ice cream.
Then, they made the cone by drawing brown diagonal lines from both directions on a piece of paper and rolling it into a cone shape.
At the end of the event, each child received a complimentary sock puppet from MicheLee Puppets as a reward for their sweet art skills.
Special guests Denise Lucich, from MicheLee Puppets, along with puppets “Ms. Raz-berry” and “Max Mint,” greeted the students.
Lucich said MicheLee Puppets works to “empower kids with the art of puppetry.”
Diamond Johnson, curator of youth and outreach programs, organized and led the activity.
