Making Puppet Hats

This is an activity I have been wanting to try out with the flowers for a while so the lead up to Christmas seemed like the perfect opportunity. We are not in Christmas mode yet but getting close.

Puppet Hats can be made into dolls, children, fairies, or angels. Check out the options and a 'how to' video at Quality Classrooms.

The video suggested using liquid colours and pipettes but we used washable markers.

Adding details to our Puppet HatsWe added the details, eyes, nose and mouth the next morning when the paper was dry and the head and wings had been added. As you can see Daisy was not quite awake. Rose wakes up bouncing!

We could use craft hair to make our fairies into angels for Christmas.

We were practicing and will try a fairy next time. Here is the one I made earlier:

Tee hee! What will your children make their puppet hat into?
