These are super easy to make & the kids love being the ‘star’ of their own puppet show!
All you need is:
Photo store to print your images (or you could print your own on photo paper)
Magnet strips (found at every craft & $2 store)
The first thing you will need to do is take some snap shots of your subjects. Make sure you capture them head to toe! It’s a good idea to make sure they take up most of the photo too!
We had a ‘dress up’ session for our photoshoot (insert a free half an hour of kiddy entertainment here ; ). Then I got the kids to pose for their photos…as you can see Master L had the most fun with this one!
Then take your images down to your local photo shop to get printed. A 6×4 print will cost you about 15cents!
Then carefully cut out your ‘puppets’.
Glue a magnet strip to the back of each & you are ready for your puppet show!
These work well as personalised magnets to hold up photos & bills etc on your fridge too.
We also used this oven tray for our puppets too! (works for those occasions where you don’t necessarily want the kids playing in the kitchen i.e; dinner time!)
The kids had (& are still having) a ball with this craft! So easy & inexpensive!
Let us know if you give this a go! We’d love to see some pics of your special little puppets!
