Do it yourself: Hand puppet

mumok mini

What you need:

  • Piece of fabric (e.g. kitchen towel)
  • Two wooden sticks (wooden spoons, chopsticks or similar)
  • Kitchen roll, toilet paper or similar
  • Ribbon or cord
  • Felt-tip pen or marker
  • Remnants of fabric
  • Staple gun

Let's get started.

  1. Spread out your piece of fabric.
  2. Wrap one end of the wooden stick with kitchen or toilet paper. That will be the head.
  3. Place the stick on the fabric and fold it over the center of the wrapped end.
  4. Tie a cord tightly around the rod below the wrapped end. Now you have the head.
  5. Knot a corner of the fabric around the end of the second stick. Now you have a movable arm.
  6. Draw a face on the head.
  7. You staple hair, hat or coat. It may be a bit difficult. Then get some help.

And then your play can begin!
