Swimming Whale Puppet

Download Activity Guide
Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming! Celebrate the majestic whale with this cute and crafty puppet! Watch him swim and make him spout water as he goes!
  • Step 1Print out the template provided. We recommend printing onto cardboard as this will provide a nice sturdy surface for decorating.
  • Step 2Decorate your whale pieces and use scissors to cut them out. We have decorated using watercolours, a wiggle eye and black pen. Adult supervision is recommended when using scissors.
  • Step 3Tape the skewer to the back of the water spout piece.
  • Step 4Cut a 9cm piece of paper straw and tape it to the back of the whale body piece. Make sure it sits low enough so when the skewer is placed in the straw, the spout sits below the blowhole.
  • Step 5Use paper fasteners to attach the whale tail and flipper, using the ‘x’ marks as guides.
  • Step 6Tape a full paper straw to the back of the tip of the tail.
  • Step 7Your Whale is now ready to swim! As you move the straws, push the skewer up and down through the front straw to make his water spout up through the blowhole.
