Puppet Patterns and Scripts

Toddler—Kindgarten
Encounters with puppet friends help young children enjoy and engage with each weekly lesson. Heartshaper lessons feature Teddy the Bear, Scamper the squirrel, and Scout the sheepdog. We provide free patterns to make your own stick or paper bag puppets, or you can purchase furry puppets. And, we’ll recommend our favorite book of reproducible puppet scripts too.
