All puppetry is a form of play. More than most forms, quick methods seldom have utilitarian ends as far as the performer is aware. If the puppets develop from the available materials, then its practical use will quickly lead from aimless play to a more formal form. It is at this stage that dangers lurk for the beginner. It is the liberating possibilities of this medium that are so very important and not the development of a set pattern for repeated performances.
