Make A Folded Hand Puppet

Have some fun transforming simple and advanced folding projects into hand puppets. There’s a little something for all ages and stages of paper folding in the resource section, where you’ll find video or written instructions. All you’ll need to make these cute little puppets is plain copy paper, craft supplies, and a little creativity and imagination.

Once you’ve finished folding your paper, decorate it any way you like and come up with a story for your new character.

If you would like to make a theater to show off your puppets, and share your story, you’ll find directions for a shoe box theater in the video section below.
