Lion and Lamb Paper Plate Puppets
Since the saying goes, March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb, why not use paper plates to make your own lion and lamb puppets?
- Natural Fuzzy Sticks
- Wiggly Eyes 10mm
- Jumbo Craft Sticks
- 2 Small Paper Plates
- Foam Sheets (black, white, yellow)
- Brown Marker
- Craft Glue
|Step 1. Gather your supplies.|
|Step 2. |
To make the lion puppet, glue yellow poms onto a small plate. Ours was already yellow but if yours isn’t colored, feel free to paint it. To make the lion’s head, cut a small circle from yellow foam and glue to the middle of the Pom covered plate.
|Step 3. |
Finish the lion’s face by adding (2) small yellow poms side by side and a tiny black pom as the nose. Glue (2) wiggly eyes on top to complete the face.
|Step 4. |
Fold (3) brown Fuzzy Sticks like an accordion, as shown.
|Step 5. |
Glue the Fuzzy Sticks around the lion’s head to create the mane. Use the brown marker to draw a mouth and whiskers.
|Step 6. |
Fold one end of an orange Fuzzy Stick over and twist to make a loop. Pinch the top of the loop to create the shape shown.
|Step 7. |
Cut 2 smaller pieces from the end of the Fuzzy Stick and fill in the loop, so that it looks like a furry lion’s tail.
|Step 8. |
To make the lion’s legs, cut (2) strips of yellow foam and use the brown marker to add claws.
|Step 9. |
Glue the tail and legs to finish your lion.
|Step 10. |
To make the sheet puppet, turn a small paper plate over and glue on white poms.
|Step 11. |
To make the sheep’s head, cut the pear shape shown from black foam and glue on (2) wiggly eyes. Glue to the center of the plate.
|Step 12. |
Cut (2) strips of white foam with (2) small black squares to create the sheep’s legs.
|Step 13. |
Finish your lion and lamb puppets, by gluing a Jumbo Wood stick to the back of each puppet!
