Cut around the face and ears as directed on the printed pages.
Glue the ears to the mask over the “holes” that would normally make it a face mask.
Glue the face to the bottom of a white paper bag.
Add large google eyes to the eye holes in the mask. Secure with more glue.
Set the entire thing aside and allow to dry completely.
Stick in your hand and get ready to throw your own Shaun The Sheep puppet show!
Whether you choose to be Shaun or Timmy this will be one puppet show that is not to be missed.
Recreate the adventure from the movie or come up with your own story. Either way, this is one way to keep the kids occupied this summer.
