Jack and Jill Puppets

Jack and Jill Puppets craft

Who's that going up the hill? It's Jack and Jill! Kids have buckets of fun creating finger puppets to act out this delightful nursery rhyme.

  • 1.

    Read the "Jack and Jill" nursery rhyme out loud. Sing the song with your parents or friends while you make these puppets. What really happened to Jack when he "broke his crown"?

  • 2.

    With Crayola® Scissors, cut two short sections of a recycled paper towel roll for the bases of your puppets.

  • 3.

    Draw arms and legs for Jack and Jill on colored construction paper with Crayola Erasable Colored Pencils. Add shoes and socks with Crayola Gel Markers. Cut out the legs and arms. Use Crayola School Glue to glue them to the rolls.

  • 4.

    Use the Gel Markers to draw faces at the tops of the paper towel rolls. Cut thin strands of paper hair for both puppets. Glue hair to their heads.

  • 5.

    With markers, color all around the paper towel rolls to design clothing for Jack and Jill.

  • 6.

    Cut additional items (such as hats) from construction paper. Decorate them with your markers. Glue on decorations such as feathers and other craft items.

  • 7.

    Create a bucket for your puppets with a short section of recycled cardboard roll. Cut and glue a bottom to the bucket and attach a handle to the top. Color the bucket with markers.

  • 8.

    To use your puppets, place your fingers in the bottom of each roll, and make the puppets move as you tell their story.
