Thing 1 & Thing 2 Craft Supplies:
Stick Puppet Directions:
1. Begin by gluing your pom poms to the top of the wooden stick. You want to place two red pom poms for the body, topped with one blue pom pom for hair.
2. You can now add your googly eyes. Press a pair of googly eyes to the middle pom pom. Just add glue, press, and hold in place.
3. Finish the puppets by adding their Thing One and Thing Two name tags. We snipped out simple circles and wrote the names on each with pen. So simple! Add some glue and attach to the center of the stick.
