Birds Clothespin Puppets are here to make play time super fun. Print out these puppets and have the kids make them themselves, they will love making them as well as playing with them.
Combine these with one or more of our other clothespin puppets and multiply the fun.
We’ve got a fun bird set for you – you’ll find a blue bird or kingfisher or well just a silly looking bird, parrot, toucan and hummingbird.
Each of these fun birds comes both as full color design as well as a black and white version that the kids can color how they see fit.
These are not only super fun but are also great for fine motor skills and dramatic play.
How to make Bird Clothespin Puppets
What you need:
- print of our bird puppet template
- clothespins (wooden are best)
- crayons, markers or coloring pencils for the color in version
Step by Step Tutorial
Start by printing one (or all) of our printable birds clothespin puppet templates. They work best when they are printed on cardstock / heavier print paper.
With the color in version, have the kids color the designs before they move to cutting. It’s just easier this way around.
Cut along the bird outlines.
Also cut along the “mouth” line.
Apply glue on the gripping area of the clothespin – if you are working with a wooden clothespin stick glue is enough to do a good job.
Glue the head and body onto the clothespin.
Your birds clothespin puppets are ready to be played with.
