I wish we had thought of this craft earlier because we have all loved playing together with our Silly Monster Puppets. Each of my family members (toddler to adult) has had a turn putting words, stories, and life into our puppets with some great imaginary play. I especially love hearing my Hubs entertain my kiddos; aren’t daddies the best at being silly!?! We have definitely gotten our money out of these puppets because they are created with things I found in the dollar store. Awesome!!! Here is how you do it:
|Pin me please! 🙂|
Supplies: (all purchased from the Dollar Tree)
Foam sheets (optional)
Glue gun & glue sticks (I already had this)
1. Safety pin 3 safety pins to the back of the duster
|We used safety pins so Ms. Tiger could decorate it on her own instead
of me hot gluing things on while she watched
|Check out the concentration, and some great hand-eye coordination.|
|The back of our monster is stuffed full. (We removed the foam popsicle
sticks in the final project because they were not necessary)
|Optional: Use a pen or pencil to curl the pipe cleaners|
|“Hi silly monster, are you my friend?….Ahhh don’t eat me…”
Oh the stories she comes up with, what a little imagination…
she keeps me laughing for sure :).
Have a great day!
