Felt Puppets

P1160850

More puppets, but this time we’re celebrating spring. It’s a great way for children to talk about the changes they’re seeing in nature; how plants are awakening, flowers are blooming, and little creatures are suddenly everywhere. They can use these observations to help them develop ideas for puppets.

Materials

  • soft felt and sturdy felt
  • coloured popsicle sticks
  • white glue
  • glue gun
  • scissors

Instructions

This is a fun way to get children to come up with a story, and create some simple felt puppets to tell it.  You’ll need to use sturdy felt sheets for the basic shapes, otherwise the puppets will be floppy. The soft kind can be used to add details. Use white glue to assemble the parts. Once finished, use a glue gun to add a popsicle stick. Place the puppets between some heavy books, so they can dry nice and flat overnight.
