Holiday Crafts: Felt Puppets

A seamstress I am not, but these adorable puppets are doable for even the novice crafter. If your little ones are handy with the scissors, have them help you cut out the shapes to construct each animal. They can also help you choose the colors…who says reindeer have to be brown? Get creative with these and the fun will literally be endless. And they make adorable holiday gifts, too!
