Although foam is not a long lasting or particularly rugged building material, it is flexible, easily shaped and offers wonderful movement possibilities for quickly made puppets. It comes in a variety of thicknesses and densities. One inch thick foam is good for starting out. It can be found in many places. If you plan on making a lot of puppets, buy a mattress pad at your local upholstery or camping supply store. Smaller pieces can be purchased by the foot or yard at many craft, fabric, or building supply stores or collected out of shipping boxes. It can be dyed with grocery store variety dyes, sprayed with floral spray, or colored with felt tip markers or acrylic paints. Dying is suggested, as the color permeates the whole block of foam rather than just the surface.
