Father Christmas puppet printables for playdough

Playdough, puppets, and Father Christmas ~ a match made in festive heaven! These little puppets are so fun to use for imaginative play and story telling.

Thanks go to Kate at Picklebums, who helped inspire the idea of puppets to go with playdough (see her fab printables here). To Picmonkey for the great graphics and permission to share them with you (check them out for all sorts of clever photo editing and images to use with your children.) And to Francine at Callaloo Soup, who enjoyed our ocean printables and requested a festive set!

How to print your puppets

To make your own set of the Father Christmas puppets, all you need to do is:

1. Click on the picture above to open the printable image.

2. Save the image on your computer. {Right click the image and choose ‘Save image as…’}

3. Open the saved image on your computer and print it. Print on card rather than paper to get stronger puppets, better for play.

4. Cut out each image and fasten onto a lollipop/craft stick or toothpick to turn them into puppets. Or laminate them and they should stand up by themselves.

5. Add in some play dough! It’s such a versatile play material. You can use some to make a snowy landscape or Santa’s sleigh, and the sticks on the puppets will stand up in the dough so you can play with your puppets. Add in a different colour of play dough and some gift wrap bows and you can make lots of presents!
