Puppy Dog String Puppet Craft Template

Teach Starter Publishing
PDF | 2 pages | Years: 2 - 7

A simple puppy dog string puppet template.

Use this printable template to create a cute puppy dog string puppet using split pins, pop sticks and tape.

Print and photocopy the Puppy Dog String Puppet Craft Template. You will need one per student. The puppets can be made using regular paper or using a lightweight card.

  1. Decorate and cut out each part of the puppet.
  2. Punch holes through each of the small circles on the template.
  3. Fold the body of the dog along the two dashed lines (the fold becomes the dog’s belly).
  4. Glue the ears onto each side of the face. Use split pins or glue to attach the legs, the head and the tail to
    the body.
  5. Tape one piece of string to the back of the head and another piece of string to the back of the body near
    the tail. Attach the other end of each string to a wooden ruler or pop sticks.

You can also download a patterned version of this dog string puppet template, suitable for a Year of the Dog Lunar New Year activity or mindfulness colouring activity.
