Today we’ll walk you through the process of creating an adorable glitter puppet! This is a great activity to bring some color to your classroom in the middle of a long term. Start by choosing a stencil or template to use for your puppet. What’s the difference between a stencil and a template, you ask? Stencils are shapes you trace around the inside of. Templates are shapes that you trace around the outside of. Either one will work for this project! We will use a squirrel template to demonstrate this process.

step 1

Start with a sheet of double color card, and lay your template in the center of the sheet. Carefully trace around the template using a pencil.

Now it’s time to add some pizzazz to your soon-to-be puppet! We started by carefully going over the pencil outline with glitter glue.

Once the glitter outline is done, add details like tail swirls! You can also use the self-adhesive gems to create eyes and other small details.

Once you are happy with your glitter and gem decorations, set your card aside to let the glitter glue dry. After the glue has dried, carefully cut your puppet out!

To finish off the puppet, carefully wrap a dowel with a glitter chenille stem. Then tape the dowel to the back of your puppet!
