Activity: Recreate your family as wooden spoon characters
How long: 1 hr 30 mins
What you’ll need: Wooden spoons (£1.99 for 8 B&M); craft items (as before)
Directions: Start by making your spoon character’s face by drawing a face on the inside of the wooden spoon using felt tip pens. Draw whatever expression suits the puppet you're making - happy, sad, angry, poking a tongue out etc.
Decorate the puppet by sticking tissue paper and scraps of material to your wooden spoon for clothing. Create the characters arms and legs with pipe cleaners, add other features like hair or hats. Make lots of puppets and put on a show!
