Puppet Patterns and Scripts


Encounters with puppet friends help young children enjoy and engage with each weekly lesson. HeartShaper early childhood 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.

Use the quarterly modifiable Family Connections letters to help parents know what will be happening during the upcoming months. Send parents links for weekly Family Together Time (early childhood age levels) or Faith & Family (elementary age levels).
