Super Easy and Cute Turtle Glove Puppet

Who loves turtles?  Here's an easy way to turn an old glove into a cute turtle puppet!  My youngest son loves puppets of all sorts, so I whipped this turtle puppet up during naptime.  Here's how I made it!

Materials Needed:

  • Old glove
  • Felt (We used both normal felt and Stiff Sticky Back Felt- this product is great because it's like a giant felt sticker.  No glue needed!)
  • Googly Eyes
  • Sheet of Paper
  • Pen
  • Scissors 
  • Hot Glue

Let's Make a Turtle Puppet:

1.  Use a piece of paper and sketch out a design for a shell.  Cut it out
2.  Once you like your design trace it onto a piece of felt.  (Normal or Stiff Sticky Back Felt)
3.  Cut out your design.  (We used cloth scissors to cut out the felt.)  
4.  Stick your felt pieces onto your glove.
4.  Glue on googly eyes.
