A quick and easy way to create a puppet of your child’s favourite character. Create two and listen to them make up stories and conversations for hours.


  • 1 printed beanie boo picture
  • 1 paddle pop stick
  • sticky tape


  1. Download or draw a beanie boo picture (or equivalent)
  2. Have your child colour it in and cut it out.
  3. Fix the paddle pop stick to the back of the puppet with sticky tape.


If you want to make the paper more rigid or wear longer, you could laminate the picture after your child has coloured it in.
