We made Leaf Man puppets in preschool

Last year, I shared this post that went along with the Leaf Man book by Lois Ehlert. This year, each of my students made a Leaf Man puppet…

The children started out by collecting their own leaves from our playscape

Next, the children selected several leaves from the leaf pile and glued them onto their paper bags…

Once the children had their leaves glued on the paper bags, then they added googly eyes to the leaf that was at the top of their puppet (which would be the bottom of the bag)…

And with that, they each had their very own Leaf Man puppet!

Here are a few more of the completed Leaf man puppets…

    I have to try these with my kids. They are really cute. Off to the library to reserve that book!

      They were simple too but you have to have the Leaf Man book so it makes sense!

      We enjoyed using the real leaves to make the puppets. The googly eyes always make it fun!
