PUPPET #2: Popsicle Paper Puppets
This is one of my favorite ways to make puppets - let the children draw them! They always turn out so adorable and the children are so proud!

PUPPET #3: Peepers!
Peepers are too much fun and super simple to make a bunch! I like to buy knit gloves at the Dollar Store to wear with the peepers. You can make hair and all sorts of things.

PUPPET #4: Good Ole Sock Puppet
Some years, I have every child in the class design and make their own sock puppet. It is such hit! And then, there is making your own to go with favorite storybooks. The potential is endless!

PUPPET #5: The Envelope Puppet
There are many variations on this method - and all are so dang easy peasy! And super inexpensive!
