Recycled ribbon? Yes, indeed, this puppet’s curls are a cascade of color! Create your very own Goldilocks or another favorite story heroine.
Who’s your favorite character with curls? Could it be Goldilocks, Little Orphan Annie, Junie B. Jones, Clifford, or Miss Frizzle? Gather up your recycled ribbon, tissue paper, and cardboard rolls to create an imaginative puppet. Here’s one way to craft a curly character.
Fold a large sheet of paper in half. With Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils draw the outline of a head. Cut it out with Crayola Scissors. You’ll have two pieces.
On one piece, sketch your puppet’s facial features with Crayola Washable Markers. Color the face with Crayola Multicultural Markers.
Put Crayola School Glue around the inside edges of the two pieces of the puppet’s head and join them. Leave an opening at the neck. Air-dry the head.
Gently stuff your puppet’s head with crumpled newspaper. Glue on one or more Curl Cascades for hair. Air-dry the head.
Glue tissue paper on a recycled cardboard roll (cut to the length you like) for the puppet’s body. Air-dry the puppet body.
Glue your puppet’s head to one end of the cardboard roll. Add ribbons, bows, doilies, or other decorations if you like for clothes and accessories.
Air-dry the glue before putting on your puppet show.
Let's make something!
