lollipop stick pal bookmark and puppet craft for kids,

These lollipop stick pals are our favourite kind of craft, each child creates their own designs and at the end you have a variety of different ideas – each one awesome and unique! The kids loved making these and were using them to put on puppet shows from under the table before finally deciding to use them as homemade bookmarks. This little craft is great for groups, simply put out a variety of materials for the children to use!

Here’s what we used

  • Wide lollipop stick
  • Paint or felt tip pens
  • Googly eyes
  • Coloured paper
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Optional decoration bits and pieces

How we made our lollipop stick pals

Using pens or paint colour in the lollipop stick and leave it to dry.

Take the pipe cleaner and shape the ends as desired to make the hands before twisting it on to the lollipop stick.

To make the hands for this bookmark we bent three bumps into the end of the pipe cleaner then twisted the length of the pipe cleaner between one of the bumps to secure before shaping with our hands. We then repeated this on the other side.

Add some fun facial features to the top of the lollipop stick bookmark
