These stick puppets are quick and easy to make and have kept my two young boys happily playing for much longer than you would expect. They loved creating them and even more than that, making up their own little stories with their characters.
Time: 15 minutes
Felt tip pens
Stick or paddle pops
Draw your characters. My son chose a ghost, monster and scared man.
Cut around the shapes of your puppet characters.
Place thin stick or paddle pop on the back of the cut out, running as far up as possible for stability.
Stick down firmly with tape.
My kids hid behind a table and held the puppets above for their puppet show.
