Simple Puppets Roundup: Quick and Easy Crafts for Kids

It's time for a show! With ready-to-use puppets, your kids can put on a performance any time! Take a look at four simple puppets in our roundup.

Lights, camera … action! Any day can be turned into premiere day when your children have a great idea for a story, a stage and a cast of fun puppets to work with. Having a collection of ready-to-use puppets doesn’t require frequent trips to the toy store. Instead, all you’ll need are some crafts supplies and a bit of imagination. This week’s roundup is all about puppets, from smaller finger puppets to on-the-go stages your child can take anywhere.

Felt Finger Puppets

You don’t need a needle and thread to make these sweet finger puppets! The Idea Room shows you how to create an entire cast with some felt, glue and accessories.

 

Recycled Cereal Box Puppet Theater

Sometimes the need to share a story can happen anywhere! Be ready for that moment by making your own traveling puppet theater. Handmade Charlotte shows you how an empty cereal box can become a fantastic stage.

 

Pipe Cleaner Finger Puppets

Who says you need to fabric to make a puppet?! One Little Project took to pipe cleaners for these creative puppets and the results are extra cute.

 

Snake Puppets

CHOMP! This small hand puppet, featured on Pink Stripey Socks, upcycles an empty raisin box into a silly snake puppet for your child to play with.
