There are some crafts that are easy enough for me! This is one of them. Do you have 4 zillion wooden spoons in your junk drawer? If so, this is the perfect craft for your family. And it is especially appropriate for this week since you will need some puppets if YOU win our door frame puppet theater in our giveaway going on right now. Check it all out HERE!
The first thing you will need for your wooden spoon puppet is... a wooden spoon. If you don't want to ruin your precious pampered chef spoons, then go buy a packet of 4 from Wal-mart for less than a dollar. These are cheap puppets!
I decided to give mine a quick coat of spray primer since my first attempt (not pictured) was a flop. The spoons absorb lots of paint! I filled the table with every crafty thing I could find: pom-poms, ribbon, paints, pipe cleaners, yarn, glue, and some crazy eyes that I picked up just for this project.
The kids (and special guest Grandma) had lots of fun painting, gluing and designing his/her very own special person. We all used a little paint, but each puppet is very unique--there is no right or wrong way to make these! Soon, it was time for a quick puppet show in the door frame puppet theater...
