Months later and I finally got around to putting together a tutorial for the pompom puppet. This would be a fun project to do with children. Bags of multi-sized pompoms with enough for twelve puppets can be found at craft stores for under five dollars. You can use a glove instead of sticks for controls. During the winter season you can find a pair of gloves (makes 2) for a dollar at a variety of stores. The tutorial as a pdf can be found here.
