How to Make Community Workers Clothespin PuppetsWhat you need:
- printable template
- wooden clothespins
- optional coloring supplies
Step by Step Tutorial
Print out the sheets – we strongly recommend using cardstock to print these on, or laminating the puppets to make them more durable.
Both black and white version that kids can color in by themselves as well as pre-colored versions are included.
If you printed the black and white version, have the kids color it in before they start cutting out the puppets.
Cut out the puppet outlines. Next, cut along the marked line across the mouth of the puppet.
Apply glue on the clothespin (wooden clothespins work best).
Stick the head on the top side of the clothespin…
…and the body on the lower side of the clothespin.
Allow the glue to dry and the puppets are ready to be played with.
