INSIDE: Stick People Puppets: Craft for Kids is an adorable craft to create anytime of the year. This easy craft is great for your toddlers and preschoolers. Create a craft that they can use in pretend play after finishing!
Stick People Puppets: Craft for Kids
Gather your supplies by taking a walk outside in the park and gathering some sticks.
Cut out fist sized circles from construction paper in the shades of different skin tones. Start creating the face of your stick person. Add yarn hair by gluing it to the top of the circle.
Either draw eyes or glue down googley eyes. Draw a mouth using markers. Help your little experiment with different ways of drawing a mouth or let them draw one on their own.
Once the faces are complete tape them to the top of your sticks using tape.
Take your stick person and wrap some piece of scrap cloth around the bottom half. This will be their clothing so let your little decide who gets to wear what!
Once your puppets are complete, put on a puppet show or simply play with them!
This activity is good for kids 3 years and up. My kids are 3.5, 3.5, and 7 year old.
