Popsicle Stick Pumpkin Puppets

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:

  1. Crayola Construction Paper
  2. Wiggle Eyes
  3. Washable School Glue
  4. Jumbo Craft Sticks


  1. I printed out a basic template from google images and used that to cut out the pumpkins.
  2. I then used the black paper to cut triangles for the noses and zig-zags for the mouths.
  3. The stems at the top were easy to cut using the ends of brown construction paper.
  4. 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!
