Tissue Box Puppets: 3 Little Pigs and Wolf

Why are u playing with Tissue box? It's not Tissue box! They are Puppets!

Three Little pigs and Wolf
Tissue boxes are our favorite recycling material. We love playing around with them. This time we created Pig and Wolf hand puppets using Tissue boxes. We used kid friendly Origami folds to create the pig and wolf face.

We are also participating in the 3rd Tissue box challenge hosted by Jdaniel4's Mom.

Materials Used:

Empty Square Tissue Boxes(oval opening)
Construction paper
Child safe scissors
Double sides tape/Glue stick

Steps Overview:

To make a puppet we just left the hand inside the opening and got our base for the puppet. On the other side of the opening we glued Origami Pig and wolf face. We can also play pretend boxing with the boxes as Boxer Gloves:-)

Origami Pig face

Kid friendly Origami Pig face

This is an easy Origami Pig face for kids with simple, easy folds.

Take a rectangle pink construction paper.

Fold in half along the vertical axis as shown

Again fold in half on the Horizontal axis to make a smaller rectangle

Make folds on the dashed lines in the directions of the arrow. The top two folds are the ears of the pig. The bottom two folds will go towards the backside of the face

Does it look like a pig face already!

Draw Eyes and Nose of the pig. You may also use Googly eyes for the eyes and Pink button for the Nose!

Origami Wolf Face

Take a square paper or Make/cut a rectangle paper into square.

Fold a rectangle paper as shown and cut into square.

Fold the square sheet into a triangle on the fold

Fold on the dotted line in the direction shown

Flip the paper over and Wolf face almost ready!

Draw eyes and Nose for the Wolf and color the wolf face gray.

For the Wolf and Pig Puppets, Glue the faces to the bottom of the Tissue boxes

After we made the Wolf and Pig puppets, we played the 3 Little pigs and Wolf story

Wolf: Little pig! Little Pig! Let me come in
