Total Time 30 minutes or less Ages preschooler

All you need for the basic version of these puppets is a sheet of paper, tape, and a marker, making it a great boredom-buster when you're on the go. We dressed up ours with additional cut-paper features.

What you'll need

  • Letter-size sheet of paper
  • Tape
  • Markers
  • Colored paper (optional)
  • Scissors (optional)
  • Tacky glue (optional)

How to make it

  1. Paper Puppets - Step 1

    Fold a letter-size sheet of paper in thirds lengthwise (A).

  2. Paper Puppets - Step 2

    Tape the seam closed (B).

  3. Paper Puppets - Step 3

    Fold the paper in half. Fold the ends in half, in the opposite direction, so that the paper ends up accordion-folded into four equal sections (C).

  4. Create a face with markers and, if you like, colored paper pieces attached with tacky glue. Slip your thumb and fingers into the two ends of the folded paper to bring your puppet to life.
