Robot Puppet Craft

For our Summer Reading Club wrap-up party this week I wanted the kids to make something they could take home with them as a souvenir of the summer. Because our theme was “Build It” and featured several robotic mascots, I came up with these easy CD robot puppets!

Robot2You’ll need:

  • Discarded CDs
  • Robot coloring page (I used this one)
  • Scissors
  • Tape
  • Pencil crayons / crayons
  • Popsicle sticks
  • Googly eyes (optional but highly recommended) and glue (if the eyes aren’t self-sticking)

The assembly couldn’t be simpler:

  1. Color the robot
  2. Cut the robot apart
  3. Tape the robot body pieces to the CD, using the shiny blank side of the CD as the body
  4. Tape a stick to the back of the CD to make a puppet
  5. Add googly eyes and other decorations as desired.
  6. Enjoy your shiny CD robot!
