DIY Disney Junior Bluey Craft Puppets (VIDEO TUTORIAL)

I can literally hum the intro of “Bluey” as I write this post. Our family loves this new Disney Junior show! It’s an animated show about a family of Australian Cattle Dogs. Our kids love it and there is just as much for parents to enjoy in the show. They added a dash of humor for the parents which makes it enjoyable to watch together. This DIY Disney Junior Bluey Puppets Craft is meant to be something fun for parents and kids to create together. It’s a paper craft that you can play with afterwards or while watching Disney Junior!

If your kids love Disney Junior's Bluey show, they'll really love this DIY puppet craft! Easy enough for kids to make with the help of their parents. #Craft #KidsCraft #Bluey #DisneyJunior #DisneyCraft #DIYDisney

DIY Disney Junior Bluey Craft Puppets

I’ve included instructions for Bandit (the Dad) and Bluey, the main character. These puppets are a paper based craft. I got everything from my local craft store, but you can certainly get everything from Amazon as well. Paper crafts are great for kids who are learning to build their dexterity. Using scissors and tracing helps to build their fine motor skills. My Kindergartener and my Husband did this craft together. You use a glue stick, so there isn’t a heated element either. All together, it cost us less than $10 to make.

 

What You’ll Need: pencil, scissors, glue stick, paper gift bag, dark blue card stock, yellow card stock, light blue card stock, white foam sheet and black marker.

Cut off the handle portion of your gift bag. This will give it the puppet shape that you’ll want. The opening of the bag is going to be the bottom! Using the dark blue paper, trace and cut out the large ear shape. Using the yellow paper, cut out the smaller inner portion of the ear. Glue them together. Set aside.

Continuing with the dark blue paper, cut out the body shapes (or spots). Add them to the bag with the ears. This will help you find the correct placement. Do not glue yet.

Set up your entire puppet, and check the placement, before gluing down your pieces. Once you’re satisfied, you can glue down each piece. Be sure to start with the bottom layer and work your way up to the top pieces.
