Paper Easter Puppets

Popsicle stick puppets are a quick, fun, and easy craft for all ages! Not only are they fun to make, but they are also fun to play with and encourage imaginative play in children.

This is a fun activity for a rainy day, after school, on the weekend, for a play-date or even as a bonding activity with grandparents or other family members.

Younger children will need some help with cutting the pieces out, but older children should manage just fine (although you know your child better than I do, so best judge their abilities).

I’ve suggested various paper colors that you can use to make these puppets, but you can use whatever colors you like. And you don’t have to stick to just five puppets either – use the template several times and make lots of different colored chicks, bunnies, eggs, and flowers!
