This Dinosaur Puppet is a fun project to introduce students to a discussion about the world of dinosaurs. It is also a cute prop for your own puppet show where the students can make up stories for puppet to act out.


2″ Foam Ball
Two 12mm wigge eyes

Eleven 1″ green pom poms

10mm Back Pony Beads

6″ x 9″ Green Felt

6″ length green chenile stem

Double sided tape

Paper Plate


Small Plastic Bag (to hold parts)
Wire Cutter*

Glue Gun or thick white tacky glue*

Pointed Scissors*


Transparent Tape


To hold puppet, insert 1/2″ of end of craft stick into bottom of foam ball. Remove, apply hot glue to the end, and re-insert (or use thick white tacky glue and dry overnight) Hot glue two eyes, side-by-side about 1/4″ apart on each foam ball. Also hot glue one green pom just under eyes for muzzle. Then glue black pony bead nested into green pom for nose.


Use wire utter to cut chenile stem into 6″ length


Horizontally place 6″ x 9″ felt on table. Fold over 1/2″ at top and tape to hold in place. Use scissors to make a 1/8″ vertical snip approx. every 1/2″ across full length (9″) of fold. This creates holes for weaving. Remove tape and unfold.


Weave chenille stem in and out of holes, allowing felt to gather.
