How to Make a Llama Puppet Craft
What you need:
- white, creme, blue, pink, yellow, orange papers
- glue stick
- colored markers
- wood stick
- small green pom-pom
Step by Step Tutorial
Cut out the template.
Use the template to trace the llama onto the desired colored paper.
Trace the tail, the mouthpiece, and the hair onto a yellow color paper.
Once you cut out the llama, you will want to start by coloring the feet.
The llama’s ears can be colored pink.
The piece of fur you traced and cut out earlier will go on top of the llama’s head.
Next, add the mouthpiece to the llama.
Now is your chance to draw a smile and eyes onto the llama.
Using the same pink marker you used for the ears – it’s time to draw on blush marks.
Don’t forget to add on the llama’s tail.
The finished llama should look like this.
Next, you’re going to make a colorful blanket for the llama. Start by cutting out a square on blue paper.
Choose other colors to cut squares out, but make the square a little smaller each time.
Yellow is a great color choice!
Orange is also a neat one.
You are going to layer the blanket, gluing each square on top of the other.
The final product will look like the square below.
Cut a long thin strip of blue paper.
And then cut a long thin strip of yellow paper.
We’re making the harness for our llama.
Fold it around the llama’s neck, as shown in the picture.
Make sure you do both colors.
Glue the blanket on top of the llama.
One of the final touches is adding the green pom-pom to the llama.
Use a stick as the puppet piece for the back of the llama.
Make sure it’s taped to the back of the llama.
It needs to be taped down well because kids can be rough with puppets.
Now the llama is ready to go on many adventures!
Isn’t this llama adorable?
You can make the whole family of llamas if you like.
Stay tuned and have fun crafting.
