Iguanas are our favorite Letter I animal. Macaroni and cheese is a favorite meal around here so we combined them with our love of recycling to create these fun puppets!

Start with:

  • Macaroni and Cheese Box
  • Colored Paper
  • Glue
  • Scissors

Create it!

Step 1: Glue the box top closed.

Step 2: Wrap the box with green paper.

Step 3: Cut three sides (leaving one long side) of an empty macaroni and cheese box.

Step 4: Cut strips from green paper and glue each end to the top of the box. Repeat.

Step 5: Cut and fold neck frills from yellow paper. Glue to box.

Step 6: Cut a crown from yellow paper and glue to top of puppet.

Step 7: Cut an eye from paper or cardstock and glue to the side of the puppet.

Step 8: Add some contrasting circles to each side for added detail.

These were really fun to make and if iguanas aren't your thing, the basic form can be used for a number of different animals!
