Little Blue Truck Puppet Craft Tips

*For this craft you will need to use royal blue, black, and grey construction paper. If you do not have gray construction paper as it is hard to find you can always color the pieces gray like the example shown. Both options turn out great.

Be sure to assist children on which way to glue their pieces on so they don’t glue their puppet upside down. This will prevent them from putting their hand in the correct opening to use it as a puppet.

This puppet craft goes great with the stories “Good Night, Little Blue Truck, Little Blue Truck, Little Blue Truck’s Springtime, Little Blue Truck’s Halloween, Little Blue Truck’s Christmas and more. 

*Make this fun puppet craft and use it in a sensory play tray related to the book or play pretend with the book. Use plastic animals along with the puppet to reenact the stories and have fun playing with it after it has been made.
