How to use the Hippo Puppet printable template?

what do you need:

  • Our printable model (you can get it at the end of this tutorial, we also have a great set of dolls)
  • Thicker printer paper (preferred, although regular printer paper will also work)
  • A pair of scissors
  • glue
  • Scoring Tool
  • coloring supplies

Watch the step-by-step tutorial

Print Template – There are two pages you will need. We recommend printing on thicker cardstock/printer paper as this will make the doll more durable, but regular printer paper will work just as well.

Color the popular templates. On the face page, only the middle third of the face map needs to be colored, as the other two thirds will no longer be visible when the doll is assembled.

We like to color dolls with markers because they really stand out; crayons or colored pencils will work too. We made the blue-gray hippo.

Also color the accessories (ears). Cut out a pair of ears and teeth.

It can yellow your teeth or just whiten them.

Back to the first page.

Fold along all dotted lines.

Run a stick (or similar) over the folds to sharpen them. This will make folding easier.

Expand after each fold.

Place the paper on the table with the drawing facing the table.

Fold the “third” with the word glue – apply glue.

Close it by folding the third one on the other side over the one with glue.

Press firmly to secure the glue (you can even press it down with a book to make waiting easier).

Once the glue is dry, gild along the dotted line to form the M shape.

Your hippo doll is almost done – just add ears and teeth.

Take the ear, fold it along the dotted line between the ear and the rectangle, apply glue and stick to the head.

Do the same for the teeth, fold along the dotted lines, but place them in the mouth.

Slide your finger over the opening and chat!

See the step by step tutorial

Print the template – there are two pages and you will need both. We recommend printing on thicker printer paper/cardstock as this will make the puppet more durable, but regular printer paper will also work well.

Color the puppet template. On the page with the face, you only have to color the central third with the drawing of the face because the other two thirds will not be visible once the puppet is assembled.
We like to color our puppets with markers because it really makes them stand out – crayons or colored pencils also work. We made our gray-blue hippopotamus.

Also color the accessories (ears). Cut out a pair of ears and teeth.
You can make the teeth slightly yellow or just leave them white.

Go back to the first sheet.
Fold along all the dotted lines.

Run a craft stick (or similar) over the creases to sharpen them. This will make folding easier.
Unfold after folding each fold.

Place the sheet of paper on the table, with the drawing facing the table.
Fold the “third” with the word glue – apply glue.

Close it by folding the third on the other side above the one with the word glue.
Press firmly so that the glue sets (you can even weigh it down with a book, the wait will be easier that way).

Once the glue is dry, gild along the dotted lines to get an M shape.

Your hippo puppet is almost complete – just add ears and teeth.
Take the ears, fold along the dotted line between the ear and the rectangle – apply glue and stick on the head.
Do the same with the teeth – fold along the dotted line – but glue them inside the mouth.

Slip your fingers through the openings and chat!
