We love Minecraft around here! My husband and I played it early on several years ago when it was still in beta and we keep coming back to it every once in a while. It’s so much fun making things in it – from simple houses to working elevators. We let Malcolm start playing occasionally this summer, and it’s been so neat to play with him and see what creations he comes up with. He just discovered Creative Mode this last week. Needless to say, both boys were a little excited when I told them we’d be making some Minecraft finger puppets.
- Print out the pattern template here
- Green felt
- Green embroidery thread (I used two different shades of green)
- Embroidery needle
- Black puffy fabric paint
Using the puppet template, cut out 2 green body pieces, 2 green head pieces, and 4 green feet.
Use either black puffy paint or black embroidery thread to add black squares for the face.
Stitch on some small green squares to the front and back body pieces.
Stitch on 2 green feet to the front piece and 2 green feet to the back piece.
Stitch together your front and back head pieces.
Stitch together the front and back body pieces.
Attach the head to the body.
And there we have it! A fun little creeper puppet. Perfect for going around and saying, “HSSSSSS….BOOM!”
Make sure to save your pattern pieces! Come back Wednesday to learn how to make a friend for the Creeper.
Update: Here’s the link to the Enderman finger puppet.
