clothespin snowman puppets

This project is intended for kids ages 3+. This adorable clothespin puppet is easy to make with basic craft supplies! Make a snowman (or other characters) using a spring clothespin, some paper, markers and wiggle eyes!
Step 1

Take a cup that's the size you want your snowman's head to be and use it to trace the circle onto white cardstock.

Step 2

Cut out the circle, then fold it in half and cut along the fold.

Step 3

Glue the two halves to the open end of the clothespin and let the glue dry.

Step 4

Cut a rectangle for your snowman's hat from black construction paper, then cut a strip to make the brim of his hat. Glue them onto the snowman's head.

Step 5

Glue two wiggle eyes onto the top half of the snowman's face.

Step 6

Cut a narrow triangle from orange construction paper for his nose and glue it in place. Let dry.

Step 7

Use your marker to make dots for your snowman's smile.
