*** Thanks everyone for your support and for finding me! This post has become my most popular, and most viewed. I updated these puppets so they download easier and with better quality. Also I added some mermaids & space robots puppets. Click here for updated puppets.
Merry Christmas friends & family!
I drew the following paper puppets for my sister-in-law for Christmas. She is going to laminate them before taping to popsicle sticks so they last a little longer.
I hope you enjoy these free printables. (Click on image and save to your computer. Make sure to scale to correct size before printing).
And/or you can print them off with no color and have your kids color them. (I'm totally an ink hog, and am very choosy in what I print in color, so I try offer everything in color and black & white).
Because I have no skills with a sewing machine my mom is helping me make this puppet theater. By helping, I mean I sit next to her and talk her leg off while she sews.
Ours wont be quite this wide, just wide enough for a door frame, but the same idea. I found this design at Skip to my lou. Sewing is one skill I would like, but just looking at a sewing machine overwhelms me, what's with all those buttons, and needles?
