How to make your astronaut puppets

As with all the finger puppets in this series (check out our Farm Animals and our Jungle Animals), making these finger puppets is really VERY EASY!!! So I have shared our “generic” finger puppet making video again. I hope that that is ok! It shows how to make the Snake Paper Puppet! The steps required are the same!

All you need to do, to assemble this cute space puppets, is:

  • Print your favourite astronaut out
  • Color it in
  • Cut out carefully (though you don’t have to cut out every last detail)
  • Fold the mouth part in 3 to create the mouth cavity
  • Cut out the two strips for your fingers
  • Glue the finger strips in place

Make one. Make them all. A fun collectible Space Craft to enjoy in the classroom or at home.

We have another fantastic FREE Astronaut Paper Puppet here – this one is an articulated paper puppet astronaut, which means it moves. It makes for a fantastic STEAM project – as it teach children some very basic mechanics when assembly the puppet. This is in collaboration with Learning Resources, so you will have to hop on over to their site to grab the freebie!
