Halloween Witch Hand Puppet

(3 ratings)

What You Need:

  • Lunch-sized paper bag
  • Construction paper
  • Clear drying, non-toxic glue
  • Scissors
  • Yarn
  • Markers or crayons
  • Tissue paper

What You Do:

  1. Place the paper bag on your work space with the flap (bottom of the bag) facing up and to the top.
  2. The flap will be the puppet's face. Have your child use markers or crayons to draw on the face. Make the bottom lip under the flap and the top lip on the flap.
  3. Add in eyes and a nose.
  4. Help your child to cut a triangle from the construction paper. Glue this on to the top of the puppet as the witch’s hat.
  5. Cut pieces of yarn and glue under the hat and on the back of the head as hair.
  6. Create a costume by gluing different shapes of construction paper and tissue paper onto the body of the puppet. Attach an extra rectangle of tissue to the back of the witch as her cape.
  7. Set aside to dry.
  8. Once the puppet has dried it is time to begin the puppet play.

Your child can use the witch puppet by herself or make other creative puppet friends such as a ghost or scarecrow to complete a fanciful Halloween story.
