Ballerina Paper Hand Puppet
I'm all about paper hand puppets for the kids. Really anything with easy paper and minimal supplies is going to be a huge win in my book. But when the kids can create something that they can then actually play with as well, I'm so excited to make that happen.
The more fun craft ideas that I can gather up for the kids, the more excited and confident that they're going to get about crafting. And I think that a paper hand puppet is one of the best crafts for kids to start. This will teach them to follow directions and then actually be able to use the craft for their imagination, too.
Anytime the crafts in our home can get used, I'm all about that to happen!
Benefits of Puppets in the Home
For as long as I can remember, I've been a fan of puppets. Paper puppets are fun to make but even puppets in magic shows and things like that have always caught my attention and made me smile. One of the biggest reasons that puppet play is beneficial is that it really does work the imagination of the child. I love seeing the plays that they'll put on and the conversations that they'll have with the puppets and just literally enjoy seeing their confidence soar.
Kids really do say the darndest things and when they have a puppet speaking for them, hilarious things will happen!
Let the kids have fun making these paper puppets and see what they'll think up next. They just might put on quite a show for you with their new paper hand puppet! This is how memories are made and how family bonding time can easily happen in a snap.

Glue the top below the flap.
Then glue the tutu slightly over the top.
Glue the bangs in place.
