  • Step 1Decorate the cardboard dancing people and make your own version of ‘Nannie’. You can use anything you like! We used tissue paper, paint, glitter glue, cotton balls, wiggle eyes and armature wire. Allow to dry.
  • Step 2Decorate the cardboard farm animals. Allow to dry.
  • Step 3Using the paper fasteners, assemble Nannie making sure to allow room for movement when you bend the pins backward to secure.
  • Step 4Use glue dots to attach a straw to the back of each of your characters. Press firmly for a strong hold. Your puppets are now ready to play with!
