Instructions

 
  1. Cut a 3"x3" piece of blue velour and a 3 1/2"x3" piece of black velour. Wrap them around your finger and secure in place with tape. Then slide off the fingers.
  2. For the Washington Puppet, tape the quarter to the top of the blue puppet.
  3. For Washington's hat, cut a 1 3/4" circle of blue velour. Fold in half. Cut a small slit (about 3/8") vertically into the center. Then unfold it, and fold it the other direction. Pinch it in the front as shown in picture above. Then pinch it on the two sides. (You will be forming a triangle on top by pinching 3 corners all together.) Optional: Glue a gold sequin onto the hat. Place onto Washington's head by placing the slit onto the tip of the quarter.
  4. For Washington's collar, cut off a semi circle from the scalloped part of the doily and tape under the quarter.
  5. For the Lincoln puppet, 1 inch rectangle and tape on horizontally about an inch from the top, as shown above.
  6. Tape the Lincoln face penny right under the hat.
  7. Cut a small triangle for the collar and tape on. Draw some buttons with a marker.
Here are your George Washington and Abraham Lincoln puppets, and you're ready to start using them!
