A Plethora of Pirate Puppets in Se7en Steps…

Hood #4 has moved on from paper dolls to pirate puppets… You have been warned!!! Expect to see a lot of these around!!!

This is what you are aiming for:


Let’s Meet the Players:


We used:

  • Pencils
  • Markers
  • White crayons
  • Watercolors
  • Scissors
  • Sticky Tape
  • Toothpicks
  • A Box for a puppet stage

Let’s Play The Game:

Step 1: We started by drawing heaps pirates in pencil, on cardboard.


Step 2: Then we colored the pirates in with markers.


Step 3: We snipped out the pirates and stuck toothpicks onto the back of them using sticky tape. And our pirates puppets were ready.



Step 4: We needed an ocean – white crayons and watercolors did the trick. And we snipped a wave line.


Step 5: And a pirate ship is essential. Back to the drawing board, and a couple of markers. And “The Se7ered Hoods” was launched!


Step 6: We snipped and launched our ship, we stuck it to the waves with sticky tape.


Step 7: We slid our boat and ocean into a shoebox and had a mini-puppet-stage.


The pirates were ready to play…


Gotta just love the crow’s nest!


Have Fun!
