Gifts Kids Can Make: Simple Puppet Tutorial

Alright . . . sorry it's taken me so long to get a tutorial up here! Here is a really basic tutorial for a simple glove puppet. First you'll take two pieces of felt and cut your puppet shape. I use this template.

Next, you'll sew those two pieces together making sure to leave the bottom open.

Now you'll need your creativity! You'll need to cut out pieces to embellish these little guys! For this one I made a really simple ninja (since that's what my boys love these days). Glue them on with some tacky glue and voila! You're done!

My two oldest are designing and making a few of these for A for Christmas. Here are a few of the puppets that we have finished thus far. Hopefully we can fit in a few more before the end of the week!

***For my first set of puppets I used wonder under but then Mr. A pulled a bunch of them off (it's his thing). I decided this time to just use glue even though it will make it a little more stiff.
