Wooden Spoon Puppet

This Summer saw a season of Stay and Play at church, and I was in charge of ‘over-5’s activities and craft’. We did finger painting, edible craft, homemade musical instruments and my personal favourite of the four weeks: wooden spoon puppets.

My pinspiration board of ideas is here.

You will need

  • wooden spoon
  • straw/lolly stick for the arms
  • fabric, card or paper to make the clothing – our local scrapstore had loads of fabric scraps which were perfect!
  • wool or trimming for hair – scrapstore was great for these too
  • sticky glue dots to stick it all together (much easier than wrestling with PVA)
  • googly eyes
  • pens to draw a face

Construction is quick, straightforward and full of potential for creativity.
