Psalm 107 | Craft 1

 

Kids love puppet crafts and nestled in the reading for Psalm 107 is verse 22 is probably my favourite “Let them offer thanksgiving sacrifices and announce his works with shouts of joy.” It just begs a response, not just of Joy but of a shout. That’s where this craft comes from. It’s probably the simplest form of puppet there is.

 

To make this craft you will need the 1 page template printout, scissors, and glue.

 
A4 paper templates

US letter paper templates

 

Cut out the big piece.

 

Fold it down the middle of the mouth – all the folds have dotted lines.

 

Fold one side back so you can see the edges of the lips.

 

Repeat on the other side.

 

Open up flat and fold either side of the lips behind the back – like you are trying to form a tube.

 

Add some glue along the grey box and make your ‘tube’.

 

Now repeat the folds so you have an ‘m’ shaped piece of paper.

 

Slide your fingers into one end and your thumb into the other.

 

Push your fingers and thumb together to make the ‘lips’

 

Open your hand to see the ‘shout’ of ‘Joy’!
