How to Build a Hand Puppet

Usually, the hand inside the puppet controls the puppet's head and mouth, but there are some hand puppets with more complicated designs that involve animating other parts of the puppet. Make a simple hand puppet out of a paper bag. You can make a variety of characters and have a puppet show.

Skill level:Easy

Things you need

Small paper bagMarkers

Instructions

1 Orient the bag upside-down with what was the bottom panel of the bag folded over to the front.

2 Draw a face for the puppet. Make sure to draw the mouth so that the top of the mouth is on the bottom panel and the bottom of the mouth is below on the front side of the bag.

3 Place all fingers but the thumb into the bottom panel and place the thumb below. Open and close the puppet's mouth by moving the fingers and thumb away from each other and then back together.

Tips and warnings
