Easy Stick Puppets

by Claire Winlow (follow)
Easy (884)      5 to 10s (616)      Imaginative play (71)      Puppet (16)      Theatre (1)     
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
Age: 5-10's
Level: Easy

Materials
White cardstock
Felt tip pens
Scissors
Stick or paddle pops
Sticky tape

Method
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.
