Yes! Start out with an 8" square - fold into the fortune telling format
(most kids
already know how to). This now is the head - glue two sections shut so that
the
puppet now only opens one way like a mouth. Create body out of 2" or 3"
wide lengths of paper - take 2 and fold over spring or caterpiller style
(form an L
shape with paper and fold one side over then the other side over always going
one direction) Now you have a springy body. Add springy arms and legs-
hands full size or not. Add other details. I glue and staple the head to the
spring body. If this does not make sense I could try to explain it
differently.
If paper is all precut the students can make these in two class periods.
