Supplies:

Instructions:

  • Take the colored paper and choose the white, blue, and red colored paper to make the craft puppets. Now, the first step is to trace the pattern on the colored paper. We can start with the hair pattern which should be traced on the blue-colored colored paper.
  • Then you need to trace the body pattern on the red color colored paper, and the remaining patterns which are head and round shape can be traced on the white color colored paper. Once you are done with the tracing part, then you can cut the traced pattern properly
  • The next step is to attach the particular patterns to the body pattern. We can start with the hair pattern that should be attached to the head. Then attach the leg patterns on the bottom side of the body pattern.
  • Now, you need to attach the hand patterns on both sides of the body pattern. Use a black sharpie if you want to write it down as “Thing 1” and “Thing 2” on the round-shaped paper.
  • You can write the “Thing 2” on a round-shaped paper that can be attached to the middle of the body.
  • Then attach the head pattern on the top side of the body pattern, and use a sharpie to draw the face of Thing 1 and Thing 2 on the papercraft puppet.
  • In the same way, you need to craft Thing 1 and remember to draw the face using a sharpie. The two puppets Thing 1 and Thing 2 should be similar.
