How to make shark clothespin puppets

What you need

Instructions step by step

Start by printing out the templates. The heavier the paper, the better (although you can also laminate the puppets).

If you print in black and white, it is best to color before cutting, so continue to let your child color the puppets in whatever colors they feel best suit their little sharks.

Next comes the cutting. Cut out the shark outline.

Also cut along the mouth line.

You’re almost done! Take your clothespin and apply glue to the clip (try not to get any glue on the clip or the clothespin will stick).

Glue the top of the puppet to the top clip area and the body to the bottom.

All has been done!

Your shark clothespin puppet is ready to play.
