Want to make some of your own wooden spoon puppets? It's a pretty self-explanatory process, but here's what we did:
Gather up some wooden spoons that you don't need anymore, or grab an inexpensive set from the store. We went to Big Lots and bought this pack of 4 for $1.50.
Paint your wooden spoons! Or, if you don't want to wait for the drying time with paint, you can just color them with markers, which is what we did.
Get decorating! We used foam paper (I got a big pack from Hobby Lobby a while ago), pipe cleaners, self-sticking googly eyes, pom poms, and markers. Easy! Use whatever you have!
Then put on an awesome puppet show!
William is quite the puppeteer. He put on a riveting show about a wood chip that was held hostage by the evil princess in her castle. Luckily, the good monsters and dinosaurs came and saved the day! Don't you just love witnessing your kids' growing imaginations???
ps. next time I think we'll try and make these!
