I may have mentioned that we have a naughty little Bichon puppy called Chewie. He certainly keeps us on our toes with frequent little walks, puppy training and play. My daughter loves to draw pictures of him and he has inspired our easy paper puppy puppet craft for kids.
Paper puppy puppets supplies:
Coloured craft papers
Black marker pen
puppy puppet template
Easy paper puppy puppets craft for kids:
Print out the puppy puppet template (above) and cut out the patterns. The big patterns are for both mum and dad dogs and the little patterns are for the puppy. Trace the patterns on coloured craft papers of your choice and cut them out.
Take the front body pattern and cut along the yellow line as shown in the template.
Take the belly cutout and slide it through the slits cut in previous step. Apply glue to attach the belly pattern with the front body pattern, between the slits and keeping the sides of the slits over the belly cutout.
Attach the inner ear cutouts in the middle of the main ear patterns.
Attach the front body pattern of the paper dog puppet on the back body pattern (marked in template); making sure to place the front body pattern right in the middle of the back body pattern.
Attach the head pattern on the top side of the front body pattern.
Attach the paper ear patterns on both sides of the head pattern. Attach the tail on either side but on the back side of the paper dog.
Use a black marker to draw the eyes, nose and other details of the paper dog puppet.
Attach the paper dog craft on a craft stick. Similarly, craft the puppy and the mummy dog and make a whole doggy family.
