DIY Craft Clothes Pin Animal Puppets
5 fun animal puppets that are easy to color and make!
I was put in charge of crafts at vacation Bible school this year and wanted to do something cute and fun with the kids. I got the idea to make clothes pin animal puppets from several different pins on Pinterest. So I drew out each of the animals they have learned about this week in Gospeltopia. These cute little guys made all the kids excited.
crayons, markers, or paint
glue (both stick and bottle worked)

The kids could do this activity on their own but younger kids might need some help.
Color and cut out each animal.
Cut across the dark line at their mouth to separate the head from the body. If I had wrote that sentence about anything by crafting it wouldn’t be a good thing. 🙂
Glue the top half to the top clothes pin. The mouth of the animal should face the opening end of the clip. Think of the clip like an alligator. Which end is the alligator’s mouth? The bottom goes on the bottom of the clip.
You will have to hold them for just a second for the glue to stick. We had some issues with them wanting to test out their puppets too soon and they didn’t hold up. Apply pressure to the glue for a few moments.
Some of the smaller kids had fun just coloring the animals and gluing them to the paper.
