Printable Christmas Puppets
If you would like to keep your kids busy, you can use the pdf files. Then let them cut out each character! Otherwise (or if you have small children) you can download the png files. Png files are usable in most cutting machines. Just use the print then cut feature. These are zip files. If you are unsure how to unzip them, you can find directions here from Microsoft support.
The reindeer and gingerbread man are symmetrical so you will just print 2 copies of the same page. All the other characters are mirrored so when you glue one picture to each side of a craft stick they will match up. It works best to print on cardstock but you could also print on plain copy paper. (In the picture above I printed the elf on paper and it didn’t turn out as nicely as the others!) Each puppet measures about 5 inches tall.
Once the puppets are cut, use glitter, buttons, sequins or other fun craft items to decorate them. Then use a craft stick or pipe cleaner for the handle and glue a matching puppet face to each side.
Use a cardboard box or a tabletop for the stage and let your kids use their imaginations!

What a lovely activity for kids! My girls would have absolutely loved putting on puppet shows with these when they were younger. I would have loved it when I was a kid, too!
