  • 1.

    Create characters! Using Crayola® Washable Markers, draw and color characters—from a favorite story or your imagination--on paper plates. Use Crayola Multicultural Markers for realistic skin colors and animal fur. Crayola Bold Markers are perfect for accents such as clown suits. Carefully tear out around the edges of your puppets.

  • 2.

    Add hair or fur! To curl paper, such as for a monkey’s tail or a princess’s long hair, roll the paper around a marker and then uncurl. It will spring to life! Attach precut yarn, maybe for a lion’s mane, with Crayola School Glue.

    Attach a finger loop! Tear a strip of paper plate. Form a loop and glue the ends together. Glue the loop to the back of your puppet. Air-dry the glue while you rev up your storytelling imagination!
