Creating Character Puppets

Popsicle Stick Characters
by Dale Ho

Looking for an easy to make mid-week activity idea?  Kids of all ages can take part in this one, simply adapt it to suit the age range and individual interests.

Have the kids make puppets of their favourite character/s from a story using popsicle sticks, recycled brown paper bags, socks or anything they can find around the house and use these to act out a scene from the book.

Super idea to engage the kids in literacy and tons of opportunity for them to practise such skills as retelling a story, predicting, relating to a character, inferring, introducing new vocabulary and much more!
