I meant for this post to happen about a month ago, before my daughters' dance recital. (Did you see my picture backstage at the dance recital on Instagram...the girls were so cute!)
My original plan was to color this little ballerina in differently for each of my girls, and then place it with a flower to give them at the end of the performance. In the end though, life got really busy and just the store bought flowers happened.
My daughters didn't mind though. When they woke up to see some blank ballerina puppets to make (on their own!!) they were super excited. As I mentioned last week when I showed you how to make no sew marionettes, my kids have had major puppet fever these days! Puppets are just so much fun!
I've provided the template that I drew at the bottom of this post. It's free for you to use for your own personal use...enjoy! If you use my template(s) to make anything from my blog I'd love it if you'd send me a photo or tag it on instagram with #snugglebuguniversity so I can see your finished projects!
Would you like to make your own ballerina puppets? Let's get started!
