Make Ghostly Rag Puppets!

5 6 7 Create! is a free series of four short videos for kids (and an adult).  It shows you how to make your own creative toys for kids from everyday items you can find at home.

Making puppets is a fun home activity for kids and is a simple way to keep creative kids entertained!

This video gives you easy to follow instructions on how to create puppet toys for kids from – a kitchen rag! Watch with the kids.

Making theatre toys can be fun for the whole family, and building toys from recycled materials is always a great lesson to teach kids about sustainability and the planet.

Our puppeteers don’t just show you how to make a puppet, they will inspire you and the kids to dive into your imaginations to put on puppet shows that will excite awe and silliness in everyone who sees them!

And why not share your marvellous creations on Instagram – and follow  @567_create and see what other people are making. Share photos and videos of your puppets and use the hashtag #567create. You can also DM us directly or share through email at
