This talkative bunny is sure to be the star of all your puppet shows!Materials:
1 empty box, 1 sheet of red construction paper, Paint, Scrap of black paper, 1 piece of white construction paper, 1 piece of pink construction paper, Masking tape, Scissors, Knife, Markers, Pencil, Ruler, Paintbrush, Optional: 2 paper reinforcements for the eyesInstructions:
- Tape any openings on the box closed. Using masking tape so you can paint on it later.
- Place the box front-side-down on red construction paper. Trace around the box and cut it out.
This will become the inside of the mouth for the puppet.
- Measure the box to find the middle, and draw a line around the box at the middle. The line should go across the back and two sides.
- Have an adult use a sharp knife and cut a slit along the line. This will be a starting point for your scissors to cut. Cut along the line across the back and the two sides of the box. Don't cut the front!
- Paint the box white. You will need to give it two coats of paint.
- After the paint dries, glue the red construction paper to the uncut side of the box.
- Make bunny ears out of construction paper, cutting them as one piece, and glue them to the inside of the box so they stick up at the top. Fold them forward a little so they will stand up.
- Paint eyes on the top of the box (or make eyes with markers or paper reinforcements). Paint a nose and mouth for the rabbit.
- Cut out two front teeth and glue them so they will hang over the edge of the mouth.
- Bend the box back. Insert your fingers in to the top half and your thumb in the bottom half. Can your puppet say, "Hi!"
