Loom band puppets



Although the loom band craze seems to be declining ( I keep seeing them on special offer) my children still love playing with them. 



They both love looping them onto craft sticks like this.



The Fairy decided that they would make a great addition to a craft stick puppet (she makes dozens of these with various adaptations– we have so many its like we have a craft stick person city!)


She went to our craft draws and decided the pipe cleaners would make great arms (she poked them into the loom band clothes) and added a face and legs with a felt tip.




The final puppet makes a great prop for pretend play and/or retelling a story
