LT saw some really cool horsey marionettes at a street fair not long ago. They were neat, I’ll admit, but not 17.99 neat!
So of course I hit Pinterest and found this awesome pin…
However, that looked like an awful lot of prep work … with the cutting and the gluing and so on and so on. Not just prep work but time and LT’s got a pretty short attention span. So I made a little bit of a shorter version and, of course, added a couple of tweaks of my own.
Note: This Kid-Can-Do still has a lot of mom-prep, but generally speaking this is a great project for kids to show off their creativity while also utilizing fine-motor skills!
You need: A couple of paper towel or toilet paper rolls, a thick needle, string or something similar for the legs and neck, glue beads buttons, sharpies, 2 popsicle sticks and packing tape.
Please feel free to share your puppet photos in the comments, I’d love to see them – Missy
