These easy DIY Toilet Paper Tube Puppets use items from a basic craft stash, so you should be able to get started right away. These puppets are perfect for a rainy day, or for play while waiting in the doctor’s office or at a restaurant.
Crafting with toilet paper tubes is fun. You might like this Kaldescope craft made with a paper towel holder.
DIY Toilet Paper Tube Puppets
To make the Toilet Paper Tube Puppets you will need the following:
- Toilet Paper or Paper Towel Tubes
- Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf Printable Puppets (personal use only, do not alter)
Download the printable puppets and open in Adobe Reader.
Print onto paper.
Cut out each puppet.
If using a paper towel tube, trim down to size.
Wrap the puppet around the tube and tape into place along the seam.
That’s all there is to it! Now you and your child can reenact this super fun childhood story. Think about using construction paper to create homes for each of the pigs, or do what my daughter and I did and head outside to use sticks and other natural materials!
Although I will be sharing a free printable that I designed so that you and your child can create the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, you could easily make your own version with markers and construction paper!
