Instant puppet–just fold paper and voila–a bird-like friend! This guy is fun to play with, and would be very simple to teach kids so that they can have their own puppet. For the one in the picture, I used an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of paper. It was a little large for me to manipulate, so it would definitely be too large for kids. Something half that size would probably be better. Instructions here.
