These beautiful DIY Sparkling Rainbow Fish Handprint Puppets are super easy, really inexpensive, and of course, fun for all ages!
- Recycled cardboard
- Hot glue gun + glue sticks
- Popsicle sticks
- Small sponge brush
- Raindrop-shaped Sticker rhinestones
- Googly eyes
Step 1: Use a piece of recycled cardboard to trace the handprints. We used a top flap of a cardboard box. Use a sharpie to trace the handprints and the scissors to cut them out.
Step 2: Use the acrylic paint and sponge brush to paint the cut outs. I used Folk Art Acrylic Pants. Allow to fully dry before going to the next step.
Step 3: Decorate your DIY Sparkling Rainbow Fish Handprint Puppets. Start by choosing the color sequins and raindrop-shaped sticker rhinestones you want to use. Using the hot glue gun, start gluing on the sequins to the fingers of the handprints. There is no proper way to do this, and every fishy will be unique. This is what makes this project so fun! Just be careful not to burn your fingers with the hot glue.
Step 4: Stick on the Raindrop-shaped rhinestones to resemble lips and attach the googly eye. Using the glue gun, attach the popsicle stick to the back of the completed fish and let the puppet show begin!
