More stick puppets

We first made stick puppets when Sunnyboy was two years old and puppet making has been a favourite activity since then. Yesterday we made a new set, this time using wooden coffee stirrer sticks and pictures from a magazine.



We also decided to make some places for the puppets to play, using cardboard, more pictures from old magazines, a holiday brochure, toy catalogues and some stickers.

  3. They are great puppets.We might have to borrow that idea of faces on paddle pop sticks:) Good idea for the scenery as well, I bet a lot of imaginative play came from those ideas:)

  4. This looks like good fun! I love the photo and sticker collages. They almost look like they could wall art.

  8. I love your little stick puppets. I've been wanting to start story telling with my little man (he's nearly two) but haven't been too confident making felt puppets. Stick puppets on the other hand is something I can definitely do. I was be linking back to this one for sure. Just wonderful!!!
