Apple Puppets For Letter A Craft

This one was a HUGE hit!!  So huge, I forgot to take pics during the process and only remembers the after shot (while they were drying so the kids HAD to leave them alone!!  LOL)  It is also pretty quick.

Popsicle Sticks
Red construction paper
Apple shape cutout
Black marker or crayon
Googly eyes


Precut the apple out of the red construction paper and draw in the leaf.

Write the child's name on the Popsicle stick.

Have the child place a small dot of glue where they want the eyes to go. and place the googly eyes on.

Have the child draw the nose and mouth however they wish.

Tape the apple to the Popsicle stick and allow the eyes to dry before having the child play with their puppet.

That's it!!!  What kind of games or shows does your child play with their puppet??


  1. Those are adorable!!! Aiden makes comic characters and/or cuts and colors characters out of coloring books and pastes them onto popsicle sticks.

  2. gosh, this looks so cute.. and your instructions look simple enough to follow. thanks so much. I am certainly going to try this out with my toddler this weekend! :)
