Elephant Paper Puppet – Sure to Please and So Easy!
These elephant paper puppets, like our monkey paper puppets, are quick to come together and use only one primary craft supply: construction paper. Easy kid crafts are the best!
Supplies for Easy Animal Puppets
I love paper puppets because you don’t need a ton of materials. Most of these supplies would be in any kid’s craft station supplies.
- Construction Paper (we used a full sheet of dark blue, and scraps of light blue and pink)
- Scissors, glue stick, and tape
- Black marker
- Elephant Paper Puppet Template (ears, mouth, trunk, and eyes)
This elephant was made in the same weekend as our monkey and tiger puppets (coming soon). It was a fun jungle-themed weekend!
