We are just finishing up preschool for the year. Just one more week. Our last unit is focusing on families and belonging. Today for our art project, we made family stick puppets. Are they adorable or what? I designed and printed out a bunch of these blank puppets and had the children make a puppet for each member of their family. They were really engrossed in this project. My daughter was all about the details. She drew each person with accuracy. Down to the exact clothes they were wearing today.
Each child had their own artistic style. It was so fun to see their personalities shine through.
I thought we would just focus on immediate families, but they wanted to add in grandmas and grandpas and aunts and uncles.
We just used crayons to add all of the details to our puppets.
But depending on the ages of your children, you could cut out paper or fabric clothes or use other craft supplies (yarn, googly eyes, whatever). Make it as simple or as complex as you like. After each puppet was lovingly created, we added a popsicle stick to the back.
Popsicle stick puppets. An oldie but a goodie.
