Puppets were made during my summer art class!  For this project, I drew a puppet template, which the kids traced and cut out from felt.  They cut out 2 pieces, a front and back.  Then, I hot glued them together.  The kids then cut out other pieces of felt and added googly eyes to decorate their puppet.  They attached these pieces with Elmer's glue.  We added a large stick inside also to hold the puppet up.  We made these really fast because we ran out of time and the kids really wanted to make puppets.  I think the children did a great job!

Puppet in progress-- the glue should dry clear!

These are great, gonna forward the link to our puppet-crazy Art teacher. She loves sock puppets the best, but I'm sure she'll get a kick out of these too

Wonderful! I love art that kids can keep creating with as imaginative play after!
