How cute are these popsicle stick pumpkin puppets as a fall craft for kids?!? I love everything about fall – from the fun crafts and decor to homemade soups and stews.
These popsicle stick pumpkin puppets were a hit for my group of kiddos. They are fairly easy to make and a lot of fun for kids! The most time consuming part is cutting out the pieces.
I printed a pumpkin template online and used that to trace pumpkins onto orange paper. The smaller pieces I cut by hand knowing they don’t need to be the perfect shape since they will resembled jack-o-lanterns in the end.
The large wiggle eyes are so fun too! These can also double as masks since the pumpkins are large enough to cover a toddler’s face.
I always have craft supplies handy, but even if for some reason you don’t have all the materials, you can conveniently purchase them on Amazon!
What you need:
- I printed out a basic template from google images and used that to cut out the pumpkins.
- I then used the black paper to cut triangles for the noses and zig-zags for the mouths.
- The stems at the top were easy to cut using the ends of brown construction paper.
- Let the kids glue on the pieces on then glue a popsicle stick to the back for the cutest little popsicle stick pumpkin puppets ever!
Next, make some paper bag turkeys for Thanksgiving!
