Wooden Spoon Puppets for Story Time

While I was training at college, we had to make up our own story bags; they would be full of props to go with a specific book. It is always fun to give children the props and for them to act out the story that is either being read or one from memory. This time I filled my story bag with wooden spoon puppets.

Make sure you follow my books board on Pinterest for more ideas. Don’t forget to save the pin for later.

To make your own wooden spoon puppets you will need:

  • Wooden spoons
  • A book
  • Paints
  • Paintbrushes

First choice which book you want to make puppets for; Rapunzel just happens to be one of BB’s favourite books at the moment. Which is great, because it meant I could draw Disney’s Tangled characters on the spoons.

I recommend using paints rather than pens for this. I tried using an acrylic paint pen but even that bleed into the wood.

YC was telling BB the story at bed time.

When the wooden spoon puppets were finally ready, I left them with the book for BB to find. At first, he got me to read the book while using the puppets. Then he used the puppets while I read it, and now he tells the story using the puppets. It is really sweet to watch him retell the story, and it is a great way to encourage a love of books and storytelling.
