As you know, we like to keep our arts and crafts activities super simple around here. These are the easiest DIY puppets ever and perfect to use with that cardboard puppet theater we made!
There's no need to go into elaborate instructions! Kiddo and I both cut out some animals from magazines (you can probably tell from the photo which photos I cut out and which ones Kiddo cut!) and taped them to craft sticks. Easy Peasy.
Kiddo immediately started using them and pretended each animal was telling the others about their environments and what kinds of food they ate. So bonus! Puppet play meets science lesson.
