Transform boring sheets of paper into simple and fun craft projects.
You Will Need
- A lunch bag
- Some markers or crayons
- A sheet of red or pink construction paper
- Yarn that's the color of your hair
- A pair of scissors
- Some glue
- And a grown-up
- a pencil
- Construction paper in various colors
- And a pair of googly eyes.
Lay out lunch bag
Lay your lunch bag down in front of you with the folded flap on top. The flap will be the puppet's face, the crease will be its mouth, and the rest of the bag will be its body.
Cut red oval
Ask a grown-up to help you cut out a small oval of red or pink construction paper. This will be the inside of the puppet's mouth.
Put glue on oval
Put a little glue on one side of the oval.
Stick under flap
Lift up the puppet's flap, or mouth, and stick the oval under this flap, sideways.
Press oval down
Press the oval down so it sticks, and then fold the flap back down.
Now draw clothes on the body of your puppet with your crayons or markers. Copy what you're wearing or give your puppet an outfit that looks like your favorite one.
Next use your crayons or markers to draw eyes and a nose on your puppet. Do you have brown eyes and freckles? Make sure your puppet has the same!
Draw lips right along the crease of your puppet's mouth.
Ask a grown-up to help you cut some yarn for your puppet's hair. Remember, if you have long blond hair or short brown hair, so should your puppet!
Put a little glue on the end of each piece of yarn, and stick them one by one on the top and sides of your puppet's face. If you want to make curly hair, ask a grown-up to help you cut thin strips of construction paper instead of yarn. Wrap each piece around a pencil so that it curls and then glue them one by one to the puppet's head.
Slip in your hand
When your puppet is finished and all the glue has dried, slip your hand into the bottom opening and wave your hand in the top flap to open and close your puppet's mouth.Now you can talk to yourself all day long!
