Using clothespins to hang the laundry might be boring but making clothspin crafts, especially these bugs clothespin puppets is insanely fun.
You don’t have to be a fan of bugs to be head over heels about these clothespin puppets. And oh boy do we have many! You’ll find a set of 4 different ladybugs, 4 different bees (bumblebee included), 4 caterpillats and 4 butterflies. From super friendly looking through silly faced ones as well as a few angry looking bugs.
These are super easy to make, just print them out on cardstock, cut and stick on a clothespin and they are ready for action.
Har, har, har…
Or this friendly bee lady.
Such a lovely smile!
How Bugs Clothespin Puppets
What you need
- the bugs clothespin puppets template from our members area
- heavier print paper or cardstock
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out our template. Each of the bugs comes in both black and white and precolored version (and facing both right and left).
If you printed the black and white version, the first thing you need to do (it’s certainly easier that way) is to color in the puppet.
Apply glue either on the clothespin, or on the back of the puppet. With wooden clothespins, any glue will do, while with plastic ones we recommend glue dots or using the glue gun.
You can also print the version of the same puppet facing the other direction, and stick it on the back of the clotespin.
All done! Your Bugs Clothespin Puppets are ready to play.
