How to Make Peter Rabbit Puppets for Kids

Peter Rabbit and Friends Puppets

If you talk to any child between the ages of 3 and 7 chances are they love Peter Rabbit and his buddies as well as his enemies! Yep Lily Bobtail and Benjamin Bunny are Peter’s sidekicks and can normally be found alongside Peter especially when he is planning a radish raid in Mr McGregor’s farm!

Of course Mr Tod is always trying to catch Peter and his friends but they always seem to outwit him!

My kids absolutely adore the 2 Peter Rabbit movies as well as the TV episodes so I knew my Peter Rabbit puppets would go down a massive treat with them. Previously I have already made a Peter Rabbit craft with them and they love it. 

These are so easy to make using my free printable templates (found at the bottom of this post) and my step by step craft process shown below!

Why not help your kids make these easy puppets and then encourage them to tell their own Peter Rabbit story!
