Super Easy Envelope Puppets

This is such a great project and so simple, using supplies that everyone has at home or at school.  I got this idea from my list of 18 Creative Ideas For Making Puppets post and after looking at it again realized that I need to try more of these ideas. My daughter has had an obsession with envelopes (putting all her notes and drawings in them)  for the past two years, so I knew this idea would be a winner with her.  Here is a bunny and spider envelope puppet made by C. 

To create an envelope puppet you need:

scraps of paper (if desired)

First cut off the end of one side of an envelope hat has been sealed shut.

Now turn it over and design your is that simple.  You can just use markers/crayons and be done or add scarps of paper for ears/horns/legs.

Here are our wonderful puppets: a queen, monsters, a spider, a bunny, and a cat.

We even made scenery for our puppets for a play.

What is your favorite envelope puppet that we made?
