How to Make Printable Dinosaur Puppets

What you need:

Materials Used

Step by Step Tutorial

Print out the desired dinosaur puppet template. You can choose between the black and white or pre-colored versions.

Color in the template.

Step 1

Cut out the puppet as well as the two paper rectangles.

Step 2

All parts are ready for the assembly.

Step 3

Make folds along the dashed lines on both paper rectangles.

Step 4

Fold along the dashed lines on the dinosaur. The top one is where the dinosaur’s snout meets the upper teeth.

Step 5

Next, have them fold the upper head part down, aligning it to the lower jaw; this will make a fold in the middle of the mouth.

Step 6

Have the kids fold the lower jaw along the dashed line as well.

Step 7

The dino’s mouth should be folded inward.

Step 8

Apply glue to one of the paper rectangles (on the folded flap).

Step 9

Attach the glued strap to the back part of the upper section of the dinosaur’s head.

Step 10

Hold in place for the glue to set.

Step 11

Apply glue to the other finger strap.

Then, attach the strap to the lower part of the dinosaur’s head, behind the lower jaw.

Step 12

Let the glue dry completely before using the finger puppet.

Step 13

Your child can now enjoy playing with their new dinosaur finger puppet!

Step 14

Why make one when you can make a bunch of printable dinosaur puppets?
