Halloween Letter Puppets–AlphaOops

We found this adorable Halloween alphabet book at the library and I knew instantly we had to do something with it.  Each letter is dressed up as something (V is for Vampire, P is for Pirate, Z is for Zombie) and it’s really quite fantastic.

We chose to remake L, M, and F for some fun little Halloween puppets.

For the L we used brown construction paper and brown yarn.  L is going to be a Lycanthrope (which is like a werewolf).



M is for Mummy.  We used black construction paper and paper towels for the mummy wrappings.IMG_4736


Royal was making L so I had him cut it out on his own.

Meanwhile, I got Logi-Bear busy tearing the paper towel into strips. 

Time to glue!  Royal put down the yarn, mostly in clumps.

For F is for Frankenstein we just cut out a green F and some black hair and glued it on.

Here’s how our popsicle puppets turned out!!



The boys really attached to these little puppets.  Even though the L accidentally got turned around, they were playing and identifying the letters.  They especially liked saying BOO just like B does in the book.
