TAA! Happy & Sad Clown Stick Puppets!

TAA! Happy & Sad Clown Stick Puppets!

This is a very simple materials project that is a crowd pleaser. ย I have made these Happy & Sad Clown stick puppets with my Kindergarteners many times, always a success! I pre-trace an 11″ circle on two papers for my students. ย We draw these either with colored markers direct or sharpie first and color in with marker. ย Paint is an option too.

ย  ย 

Other materials needed, are sticks! Can be these short dowels I bought from Hobby Lobby or skewers, or even a couple craft sticks. ย You will also need some colorful tissue paper. ย I cut the tissue in approximately 4 x 3 inch pieces and fringe one end for hair.

ย  ย 

After the faces are complete, tape a stick to the back. ย The higher the stick, the more stable the puppet. ย After the stick is attached, I walk around and but the glue on for my students. A nice healthy curve at the top to set two layers of tissue on top of.

ย ย 

After the tissue is glued to both clowns, I walk around and put a spiral of glue on and students glue the puppet together.

ย  ย 

Here are some Happy Kindergarteners! ย They did a great job!!!
