Do the preparation task first. Then watch the video and do the activities.
LUCA: Wow! Ice lollies! Is it snack time?
LUISA: Not really!
LUCA: Oh. So why do you have ice lollies?
LUISA: Because today we are going to turn this ... into this!
LUCA: Wow! A stick puppet! I love it!
LUISA: Me too!
LUCA: So, what do we need?
LUISA: We need a stick, coloured paper, a felt-tip pen, scissors, a glue stick and something round, like a glass or a tin.
So, the first thing to do is to cut out two circles, like this one.
Great! So this is the face. Now you can draw on eyes, a mouth …
LUCA: OK! Eyes … a mouth. My puppet is very happy!
LUISA: You can have lots of fun drawing faces - angry faces, sad faces … You can stick on a nose, ears, whiskers, a bow, glasses or a hat!
And now, the final step. You need to put glue on the circles. Put the stick onto one circle and stick the other circle on top.
That's it, we have a stick puppet!
This is my favourite puppet, Mrs Rat!
LUCA: Ooh, I think I've got the perfect friend for Mrs Rat. Mr Cat! Meow! Meow!
LUISA: We hope you have fun making your own stick puppets!
LUISA AND LUCA: Bye bye!
LUISA: Remember! To make a stick puppet:
- cut out two paper circles
- draw a face
- glue the circles to the stick.
That's it! Now you can play with your stick puppet.
