Step 1

Find a tennis ball. It doesn't really matter whether it is old or new, as long as it is clean.

Step 2

Make a smile for your puppet. Use a box cutter, scissors or a knife to cut a curve into a smile shape. Follow the grey line of the tennis ball on one side, as this will be easiest to cut along. The width of the smile is up to you but don't make it too long or it might split the ball in two.

Step 3

Decorate your puppet. Use crafty bits that you have around the house. For example, felt, googly eyes, paper, etc. Be creative with these items and give your puppet a face: eyes, nose, ears, hair, freckles, teeth - whatever you fancy. You can also use a marker for some of the features, such as eyelashes or freckles.

Make your tennis ball puppet chat. Squeeze the sides inwards to make your puppet appear as if it's talking.
