Today’s unplugged play idea is stick puppets.
Have fun creating puppets, which is a slightly messy craft that is lots of fun and very creative. Later, use your stick puppets to act out stories and put on a stick puppet play together. You could even include your stick puppets in some cardboard castle play from one of our earlier Unplugged Play activities.
Supplies and materials
- craft sticks or popsicle sticks (or even strips of cardboard)
- glue or tape
- scrap bits of felt, paper, fabric
- a bit of patience for the drying time if you’re using glue
