Inspired By Puppets! Tutorials, Patterns and More for Puppet Fun at Home

While the weather outside might be frightful, these puppets are sure delightful. When the weather is too cold or blustery for you to take your little ones outside to play, why not have some fun with puppets and imagination right in your own house. These would also be great for long car rides to visit family or for putting on a play for your friends that come to visit. I found the cutest finger, hand, and shadow puppets around as well as tutorials for making your own and theaters to showcase it all in. Click through and tell me your favorites…
