Making Asbestos Puppets in Pre-School

STORY BY: Ruth Cooper
YEAR: 1963

Ruth grew up in Corunna, a small Ontario town on St Claire River and Lake Huron. She remembers her teacher bringing in a big bag of asbestos in 1963. They added water, shaped it into a dough, added little faces, and painted them. Asbestos puppets! Thanks for sharing, Ruth.
