Arts & Craft by Me Books Asia: The Purrr-fect Hand Puppet

Hand puppets are the perfect storytelling tools to instil learning in children whilst having tons of fun! Pretend play with your child with the purrr-fect hand puppet for a more enticing experience with the book—They All Saw A Cat by Brendan Wenzel.

Materials Needed:

  • Strings

  • Drawing Materials

  • Scissor

  • Black Paper

  • Felt Material

  • Hot Glue Gun

  • Bells

Follow these steps to make a hand puppet right meow!

Step 1:

Place your palm on a blank piece of paper. With a pencil, trace around your fingers to make the shape of the cat puppet.

Step 2:

Follow the line and draw another outline as a sewing guide with a 1 cm gap between both lines.

Add two triangles for the ears.

Step 3:

Draw dotted-lines with a marker on the inner line and cut out the shape following the outer line with a pair of scissors.

Step 4:

Fold a felt fabric into half. Make sure it covers the entire shape of the cat, and hold the paper in place with a few pins.

Step 5:

Cut out the felt fabric according to the shape.

Step 6:

Secure both fabrics with pins.

Then, start sewing along the lines. Remember to leave a 1cm gap from the edge of the puppet! 

Step 7:

Once you’re done, flip the puppet inside out.

Step 8:

To make a collar, cut a piece of felt fabric and sew a bell onto the fabric.

Step 9:

With a hot glue, stick on the eyes, nose, ears, collar, whiskers, paws and anything you wish to include!

Voilà! A little cat that is going to bring you and your family a claw-some experience.
