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. We used running stitch to sew our puppet together, take a look at our How to Sew a Running Stitch for more information. For a quicker, easier option glue your puppet together instead.
  • Step 2Print out the 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 3Glue two large wiggle eyes to the face of your puppet.
  • Step 4Lastly add some stripes (cut from extra felt) to your puppet with glue.
