Today I had two very tired little ones who weren't being very patient with anything and wanted something to do.
I went to the craft draw. I found a lolly stick. I found some card and some googly eyes. Then the idea came to me! Puppets!
Then I found some shiny paper and some glitter. I smiled as I thought...
This is how we made ours...
You will need:
- Pens and Pencils
- A lolly stick
- Glitter - we used silver and gold
- PVA glue
- Holographic card or other shiny sparkly card
- A gold shiny pipe cleaner
- Googly eyes (optional you can draw eyes on instead)
- Wool for hair (this is optional again you can draw the hair instead if you prefer)
Draw round a bottle top to make a circle like this, it will be your head...
Using your lolly stick draw two lines down at a slight slant then a line across the bottom to make a dress like this...
Using the end of your lolly stick draw round it to make the feet, or shoes...
Cover the dress area in PVA glue and then dust with glitter...
Let your little person draw round their hands on the back of the shiny card you have chosen - Honi, my six year old, wanted me to help her with this bit - then carefully cut them out.
Add the googly eyes to the face area and put on a smile, a nose maybe freckles what ever you want. We added some wool as hair on ours too!
Stick your cut out hands and the lolly pop stick this this on the back. The thumbs should overlap on the back of the head.
BE SURE THAT YOUR SHINY SIDE IS FACING THE RIGHT WAY!
When you flip it over you should have something that looks like this...
Now for the halo. Get 8cm of sparkly pipe cleaner and bend it like so...
Twist it round to make this shape twist the short end round the long until it's hidden.
Tape it to the back of the angels head. so your finished angel puppet looks like this...
THEN YOU ARE DONE AND ONCE SHE IS DRY SHE IS READY TO BE PLAYED WITH!
