Is it a puppet or a pencil pot? You decide!

This summer the Navy said goodbye to HMNZS Endeavour. Over the last 29 years she has travelled all over the world and visited many different countries, near and far. Be inspired by her travels and choose an animal that lives in one of these many countries to make into your 'puppet pencil pot'. When you've finished playing with your puppet simply remove the handle and it can become a handy pencil pot. 

Adult supervision recommended when playing with puppets. Not suitable for under 3s due to materials used and small parts. Adults must remain with their childdren in the session. Some children will require adult supervision.
