Cutest puppets EVER!! Total cost was $2 and it's all available at the dollar stores!  Check out the tutorial!!!

 The kids and I made these super easy and fun hedgehog puppets the other day.  We’ve had some cabin fever – feeling all cooped up for the winter.  They were bored with all the regular toys and coloring books and cartoons.  I mean, poor kids.  Really?!   Geez!

But, I was kind of bored too, so I decided to raid my stash of Dollar Store ideas.  I grabbed the mircofiber mitten dusters and thought they kind of looked like hedgehogs.  And thats how these funny puppets were born.  These seriously took only minutes to make thanks to hot glue.  But, you could easily make them gift worthy with a few stitches, instead of the glue.  They played with these silly puppets for hours.  And the HUGE bonus is that they think it’s fun to help me dust now!  WIN.  WIN!!   (Puppets made out of dusters…..GENIUS!)   :)

What you need:  

  • Mitten duster.  $1.00.  Dollar Tree  (I bought two)
  • Hot glue.  on hand.
  • felt or fabric scraps.  on hand.
  • google eyes.  $1.00.  Dollar Tree.

Total – $2.00.  Well spent!

What you do:  

  • From the felt or fabric….Cut out a circle for the face.  2 ovals for the ears.  1 oval for the nose.  1 more smaller oval for the middle of the nose.
  • Glue these little faces together onto the smooth side of you mitten.
  • Give them to the kids.  They just talked with them to each other for at least 45 minutes.  And then a puppet show.  And then they played cars with them.  And then they tortured the dog with them.  And then they introduced them to all of our other puppets.  And then another puppet show or 5.  And then we dusted.  HA!   And I got to clean the kitchen, make dinner and do some laundry while they were playing.  And I got some extra dusting done, too!  Good day.  :)
