Make your own puppet

At a Diane’s Puppets party there is always an option of a simple craft session as part of the entertainment.

I will design the craft around a theme of the clients choice or to complement  the puppet show or story session.

Recently I entertained at a lovely four year old girl’s birthday party where we made our own finger puppets as part of the entertainment session.

Finding a craft that can be easily done in 20 minutes and is not too messy and do-able for tiny fingers isn’t always that easy.

I drew up simple characters from my fairy puppet show and copied them on to card. Cut holes in the bottom for fingers and cut around the outside.

I brought along feathers, yarn and sequins and self adhesive jewels and stickers.

The children were encouraged to colour the pictures in and stick on their own decorations. With a little help from the mummies, this was easily achieved.

Everyone produced their very own lovely puppets which they proudly took with them at the end of the party to show to Daddy.
