Masks & Puppets

Looking for ideas for dress ups or a puppet show? Look no further - we've got you covered!

  • To get started, download the template above.
  • Step 1Join together the two sides of your hand puppet by stitching them together, leave the bottom open so you can put your hand in your puppet.
  • Step 2We used running stitch to sew our puppets together. For a quicker, easier option glue the puppet together instead.
  • Step 3Look to our puppets and use the templates provided or come up with your own safari puppet designs.
  • Step 4Print out the animal template and trace each piece onto felt and cut out. Using our picture as a guide, attach the face onto your hand puppet. We have labelled each part of the face to help you!
  • Step 5Glue two large wiggle eyes to the face of your hand puppet.
  • Step 6Lastly add some spots (cut from extra felt) to your puppet with glue.
