I'm so excited for Nicole to share this Dr. Seuss craft today. I can't believe she free-handed the Thing 1 and Thing 2 heads to create these amazing puppets. Remember to check out the Dr. Seuss party she hosted, also featured on obSEUSSed.
We are swapping blogs today, each sharing kid crafts. Visit her blog, My Everything Else, to see the activity I created to go with the Berenstain Bear book 'Inside Outside Upside Down' and look around at her other fun posts while you are there.
Thanks Victoria for having me! I'm Nicole with My Everything Else. I have four kids, including identical twins, and stay busy writing, blogging and working from home, (in addition to everything else).
Today I am so excited to share with you Thing 1 and Thing 2 Paper Bag Puppets!
When I was planning my twins first birthday party, I combed the internet for Thing 1/Thing 2 crafts and party activities. When I couldn't find what I was looking for, I decided to make my own.
I thought I'd share them with you!
Gather your supplies:
- Paper bags (I found RED ones at Hobby Lobby)
- Crayons or Markers
- Thing 1/Thing 2 Printable. (Download and print.)
TO PRINT: Click on the word 'Scribd' in the lower left corner to download. Or click on the first box at the bottom to view fullscreen then copy and paste each page into your document program to print.
Assemble your puppets:
First, print out both pages of the printable. You will need to print both pages for EACH puppet you want to make. Color your pages and cut them out.
Next, Glue the "half face" under the bag flap as shown below.
Then glue the "entire face" on top of the paper bag flap, making sure to line up both chins.
Glue the arms (there is no right or left, you can choose) inside the side fold of the bag.
Finally, choose if you want your Thing to be Thing 1 or Thing 2 and glue the circle on the front of the bag. Tip: if you want to change which Thing your puppet is, tape it instead of gluing it.
