(us – obviously) 🙂
The bird and I had a blast making these wooden spoon puppets today!
Two dollars well spent! I got them at the Dollar Tree – one dollar for a pack of 4 wooden spoons of varying lengths. Sweet.
First, she decided who the puppets would be. Then she drew the faces. We had 8 spoons – and she chose 8 members of our family.
Then she chose yarn and scraps of fabric (mostly old or stained clothes from my craft stash) for each person. I glued the ‘hair’ and ‘clothes’ on since I was using hot glue. I contemplated letting her do it with tacky glue, but decided that it would take too long to dry and we wanted to have a puppet show SOON!
It was a very easy and cute project. The bean is super pleased with them too. She was so excited to tell him who each puppet was. Cute.

I made a quick little puppet theater out of a copy paper box, but some of the spoons were too tall for it……..and the bean kind of smashed it anyway. It was a fun little theatre while it lasted. The puppets are still super fun without a venue. 🙂
