There is something about little sticks that are made to look like people that get kid's imaginations going for hours. Fortunately, these entertaining stick puppets fit into the group of fun easy crafts for kids at almost any age. Kids that are very young are going to need to be supervised with this craft because there are some smaller parts.
Materials You Will Need
Googly eye stickers
Steps In Making The Stick Puppets
Step 1 - Get your kids to bunch up some of the feathers that are going to act as hair. Once they have the 'hair' just the way they want it, tape the bottom of the feathers to the top of the stick so that the majority of 'hair' is flowing and bouncy. The kids can tape if they want while you hold or vice-versa. Either way they will like this part.
Step 2 - Let your kids put the googly eyes on the stick however they want. Although, they should probably be where the eyes go (just below the hair.)
Step 3 - Let your kids draw a face below the eyes. If you want, clothes and other things can be drawn on the stick as well, but usually the hair, eyes, and mouth will be enough to keep a kids imagination going for hours.
Step 4 - Encourage your kids to put on puppet show. This will keep them busy planning their show and it will allow them to use their creative side even more.
