Sugar Aunts: Peep Chick Puppet Craft for Spring Pretend Play

Peep Chick Puppet Craft for Spring Pretend Play

This was a fun and easy craft to make with the kids with a few basic materials we had on hand.
 

Chick Puppet Craft for Kids

Pretend play with puppets is a great way to explore language with children, get the imagination, going, and just have some fun!  These chick puppets were a fun way to play and get some Spring fun going when the weather outside was not so Spring-like.  Mom loved these puppets for their fine motor work when that the kids did while making them.

Painting crafting sticks is a great fine motor activity for toddlers.

We started with a few materials.  Baby Girl painted craft sticks with yellow paint.  This was slightly messy, but big time fun.

Use Feathers, paint, and glue to make a chick puppet craft.
 
We've been on a Spring chick craft kick recently and used the same yellow feathers as we did in our chick juice box craft. 
 
Once the paint dried, we glued our feathers onto the craft sticks.  Let the feathers sit for a little while to allow the glue to dry.

 
We then used wiggly eyes that we received free from www.craftprojectideas.com.

Our puppets are starting to look more like chicks (and only slightly crazy)!

These guys fit in well in our house...

A little bit of orange felt for beaks and our chick puppets were finished.  We used these cuties to play, sing songs, and act out stories.  How can you use these chick puppets in pretend play?
