Making Puppets Is So Easy

It’s so easy to make puppets and you don’t need fancy materials or any special know-how. In fact, we made all of these crafts with things we found lying around the house. A brown paper bag, an odd sock, scrap pieces of felt and some construction paper were all we used and you will had loads of fun too!
