Kiki and all the other animals of Message in a Bottle continue their adventures in kids’ own plays – as DIY paper puppets!
We know that kids love them – we’ve been using these animal paper puppets during our storytelling events and they’re always a hit. Not only are the puppets fun to make, they’re even more fun to play with!
Here’s how your kids can make their own animal puppets:
- Print out the PDF below.
- Let the kids colour the characters.
- Cut out the animals. If you want to make the puppets extra-lasting, laminate them before cutting out.
- Attach a flat wood craft stick behind each animal with glue or glue pads. Done!
