Just about every kid in the world loves stickers, including mine. I loved them as a kid, too, I even had an entire notebook dedicated to my sticker collection (which I still have somewhere). But as a mama my biggest interaction with stickers is peeling them off furniture and our wood flooring, which is definitely not fun.
My kids were thrilled to find these puffy Wizard of Oz stickers in an awesome pack of crafts we received recently, and when I came up with the idea of turning them into puppets, they loved them even more!
To make our puppets, I just washi-taped them onto some knitting needles. We also made some puppet theaters out of old cereal boxes. My six-year-old, Liam, even made different backgrounds to slip in for scene changes.
And he had a great time putting on a show for me to share, too:
The kids have fallen in love with the Wizard of Oz (both the movie and the book), and the new craft line from Darice only opened the door to their imaginations even wider. For more crafty ideas, visit Darice Crafts around the web:
