How to Make Puppets with your Children
Kids like to play with puppets, because they can use their fantasy during this period (and they have rich imagination). They can imagine peoples, animals, different situations and life attitudes. These puppets will be prepared from wooden spoon. This is a simple and cheap idea, which is in every household. It will entertain your kids for a while.
You need the following raw materials:
* wooden spoon
* colorful ribbon
And the game can begin!
First of all let your kids choose their favourite animals. For example: dog, cat, lion and so on…
Second step: paint the wooden spoon with the basic colour. You can use bravely high colors. For example a mouse can be blue, the cat may be pink, in this case it’s not problem. The main thing is your child feel the decision freedom and use his imagination. (You can take a look at a sample picture on my website.)
Third step: cut ears from the cardboard, embellish these and fix with the glue to the wooden spoon.
Fourth step: paint face (eyes, nose, mouth, moustache, tooth …) for the animal puppet.
Last step: tie with colorful ribbon the neck of the puppet.
Only your fantasy set a limit to the number of the puppets you can make. Also you can prepare the members of the family, as puppets.
