Transcript

LUISA: Tada!

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.
