Say goodbye to Hairy Maclary and friends by making your very own dog puppet!

What a fitting way to send off Hairy Maclary and the gang - make your own dog puppet for your bedroom!

  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Hole punch
  • 4 bendy plastic straws
  • String
  • 2 popsicle sticks

How to make it

  • Paint the toilet paper tubes and let dry.
  • Cut one tube in half; one-half will be for the head and the other for the ears.
  • Cut the ear, a single elongated 8-shape out of the cardboard tube.
  • Glue them to the top of one side of the head.
  • Push the cardboard where the ears are glued, creating an indent on the head to make the ears stick up.
  • Glue two Popsicle sticks together to form a cross.
  • Punch four holes on the bottom of the body for the legs.
  • Thread two pieces of sting through the leg holes, adding cut bendy straw pieces or the feet and knot at each end.
  • On the opposite side of the tube, punch holes at both ends of the body and thread a long piece of string through the body and the head.
  • Tie it to the Popsicle stick-cross.
  • Glue on a cut bendy straw to create a tail.
  • Stick on googly eyes.
