I would say this would best be done with two and up. You could possibly do it with 18 months and up, depending on the child.
- Paper bag
- Construction paper
- *you could also use any other art medium you want to
- Tell your child he is going to make a puppet of himself.
- Ask him how he wants to create himself. What color of hair should we do? What color of shirt do you want to wear? How long should we make your hair? Help your child create the items as needed.
- Cut out items.
- Glue it together.
You could make one, too, and then practice role playing with your respective puppets. You could even trade and show your child the appropriate way to act, as well as see how your child views the way you give instructions ;)
