Munch! Crunch! Lunch! Transform recycled snack cups into performing puppets with movable mouths.
Wash and dry two recycled plastic containers for each puppet. You will join them together, with their bottom sides becoming the puppet’s mouth.
Ask an adult to punch two holes in the bottom ridges (back of the jaw) of both containers with the pointed tip of Crayola® Scissors. Push a chenille stem through the holes and twist it, to connect the top of the jaw to the bottom.
Ask an adult to cut down the back edge of each plastic cup, so you can comfortably rest your fingers inside to move the mouth.
Use Crayola Model Magic to create lips and eyes. Color them with Crayola Gel Markers if you wish. Attach them to the puppet with Crayola School Glue. Air-dry the puppet overnight.
Glue hair to the top of the puppet head. Use curly doll hair, cut paper, cotton, yarn, or anything safe that looks like hair. Personalize your puppet with details such as moustaches, braids, beards, or eyebrows. Glue on decorations. Air-dry puppets.
