We love taking items that otherwise would end up in the trash or recycle and making something fun from them. With that idea in mind, these imaginative play upcycled forest animal puppets were born!

Start with:

  • Dual Compartment Yogurt Containers
  • Paper or Cardstock, multiple colors
  • Scissors
  • Hot Glue Gun

Create it!

Step 1: Cut or trace a circle portion on paper or cardstock. (We used a soup bowl to trace.)

Step 2: Cut out circle portion and glue to corners of smaller portion of yogurt container.

Step 3: Cut back portion of circle to open up the smaller portion of yogurt container.

Step 4: Cut and glue eyes, ears, nose and any other accessories for your forest animal.

Fun imaginative play for little ones cooped up inside during these cold winter months! As always, little hands can easily be burned with hot glue gun so supervise carefully or better yet - join in on the fun!
